    I'm looking for a used incubator...nothing big. I really would like it if someone could just make me one. I haven't the skills to make one and to be honest I can't find most of the supplies.Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks!

    Please include your price and an estimate shipping with your offer!

    Perhaps someone closer can help this BYCer.

    Have you seen the styrofoam incubator/coolers?

    All I needed was a styrofoam cooler (freecycle, omaha steaks kind), a dimmer, a light set up (the kind you'd make a bottle in to a lamp), a hygrometer, a lightbulb and a piece of glass from a cheap picture frame if you want a viewing window.

    Cost me less than $15, IIRC.

    You have to hand turn and it doesn't have a fan, but it works. Very easy to make, too.

    If my dog hadn't chewed the bottom, I have an LG I'd give you. It's not perfect but would have gotten you started. I wonder if you can order a new bottom..

    Henry, if you can get a replacement bottom for it it's yours as soon as I finish the incubator I am making. [​IMG] It's a still air, but I've gotten hatches from it. I just prefer my hovabator.

    I'll look and see if there is a model # or anything. Just say it's a class project. [​IMG]
