    Sunday is the day. i've built my first serious incubater from a microfridge. it contains an egg turner, themostat, 5 thermometers, 2 for humidity, 2 fans and 6- 1/2 inch holes in top to control humidity that are closed right now. i also cut a window in thr door. the insulation is so good that the 2- 75 watt bulbs come on just a couple times an hour. if this one works out good, then i'm going to build me a cabinet type out of finished plywood. it will be stained and polyurethaned and have my friend draw a rooster on the front. hello evertone on BYC, hope you have a great day.
