    We are going to be getting a Brinsea Mini-Advance incubator and were wondering where is the best place to put the incubator in your home? I was thinking of just placing it inside the brooder when we move our chicks no to there coop outside and it would be a more stable temperature in there and with no drafts......Any ideas???[​IMG]

    Wherever you decide to place it, it must be away from drafty ereas, windows, doors, A/C, and anything that could cause the temperature to fluctuate, aswell as away from any other household pets that could knock into the incubator or jump on it. If you put it inside the brooder, it seems it would be a bit difficult to manage. However, it's your choice, best wishes :)

    The whole front of the brooder comes off(it is a single piece of plexi)...so I dont think access will be difficult and we have no pets so it might be the best and easiest choice right now. Thanks for you input and ideas..
