I made an incubator out of a styrofoam cooler i sent less than 10 bucks. I just have to buy a temperature gauge that also checks humidity on Sunday. And then I am set. It is at around 100°. I think i may attach a fan to the top to circulate air. Thisis the first time I have attempted hhatching eggs so hopefully all goes well. I keep getting fertile eggs from my Easter Egger hen. Fingers crossed. If anybody has any suggestions or advice it would be greatly appreciated.
