    post pictures of your incubators, homemade or not, and your hatching success with the bators!! [​IMG]


    my bator:
    -homemade
    -styrofoam ice-chest
    -bottle lamp kit
    -reptile thermometer/hygrometer set from petco (3-5 bucks)
    -25 watt bulb
    -16 egg capacity
    -glass picture window
    -duct tape
    -reptile thermometer and thermostat bought online--works like a charm [​IMG]

    I have 15 eggs inside, 9 of which are fertile, and are on day 16!!

    happy hatching! [​IMG]
