I finally made my first mini fridge incubator. It took a little time but it hold the temp great and it is very clean. It ended up costing me about $24.00. I still need to purchase a LG turner. So in the end it will cost me about $65.00. Not bad. I used a computer fan, wafer thermostat and a light socket. Pretty simple design.

I use my daughters mini fridge (the one she had in her dorm in college) as my egg storage for the ones I sell. Never thought of using it as an incubator. Talk about recycling! I bought a little giant still air incubator and have my first hatch incubating now. So far so good. If I need a bigger one, I just might try the mini fridge idea!
