    I just received a Hovabator 1582 incubator from a friend which had quite a few parts missing including the wire floor, plastic tray, and plugs. Is there any place to buy spares or is there a way to make parts such as the wire floor and plugs?

    You could use a piece of hardware cloth for the floor and wine corks for the plugs

    That sounds like a good plan. I just need to make sure that the hardware cloth won't heat up the eggs. Also what do you think I should do about the plastic liner? @Vnctan
