    This is my hatchery...an old hovabator with forced air and a new incubator Im building. Just getting started on the new design. I was given an aquarium shipping box from a pet store......wired in a light...lined the walls with thermal lining and put in a water bowl area for humidity....Installed a window for viewing. I will add a small pc fan and a thermostat soon....Looking forward to trying out this new creation

    There's plenty of space for an egg turner in the new incubator........

    This is a fun project ...I will add a wire mesh floor and add vent holes ......I figure the vent holes will let me control the humidity abit better. I will make plugs as well if humidity is lost.
