    My incubator is now completed. I made it out of a mini fridge and it should hold some where over 4 dozen eggs at a time. I plan on incubating in this one and then hatching in my brinsea octagon 20 eco. It seems to be getting right where I need it for hatching and I haven't even done any fiddling with the thermostat yet. It's also done just in time because I got two eggs today from getting none in a few months. I'll hopefully get pictures tomorrow.

    I have to manually do it, so it's semi-automatic. So far the temp. is perfect and I can get at least four dozen eggs between the two egg trays with egg cartons. I'll post back again when the eggs hopefully hatch.
