    Is there an incubator that does not have to be inside in a controled climate?? If there is what is it called and where could I find one?
    The wife says no more incubators inside lol so I got to look for other avenues..



    Thanks for looking!

    Why no more incubating inside? I could see it with a brooder but a bator does not take up too much room and is pretty quiet most of the time. If my wife told me that and would not allow me to indulge in that small pleasure then I would tell her to go sleep in the garage. Don't you have a basement or laundry room or utility room or something?

    Yea the only reason she dont want me to hatch anymore is cause the smell on hatch day. I do have an extra room and that is where i do my hatching
    but I have company every weekend lol brother and his fiance and cousin and just always have company so thats why I dont hatch in there any more
    and wanted to look for an alternative lol...
