    First off I want to thank all of you who have submitted pictures and ideas on building your own BATOR. I looked over many different BATORS and came up with this one. I used a hot water heater thermostat, 2 40 watt light bulbs, CPU fan and many other items I had laying around. The top is hinged if I need to get into the eggs. The bottom 6" is will come off as well if I need to get there for any reason. I added the PVC pipe to add water as needed without opening it up. The only things I had to purchase was the egg turner and the thermometer. It had maintained a temp of 99-100 for a couple days so I think I am ready to give it a try. I will let you all know how it worked. If any one has questions let me know.

    Again, thanks for all your help.

    Eggs went in this moring. If everything goes well I should have some Americana and Rhoad Island reds to add to my flock.
