in a homemade incubator do you have to put hardware wire at the bottom.
It's personal preference, mostly. You make the bator, so you can decide. However, if your water trays are on the bottom, you will want the wire over it so the chicks don't fall in and drown, and if yor water and heat source are on one side, you should put up a wire partition to keep a chick from drowning or getting burned.
o okay thxs idk where to get hardware cloth at so idk.
I did in mine just because its an old chest frezor and the wire made the floor flat strait across. I also added another fan cause its so big and my hatch rate went from 50% up to about 90%. And the temp stays more consistent.
okay but mine is a small strafoam incubator so think i fan is fine
