    I am working on my new homemade incubator. It is an old Victrola machine my mom gave me. The left hand door was missing so I made one for it. In that section are shelves for records, but I am going to make some metal drawers to go in them for hatching eggs. The right side had the mechanical parts and turn table which I took out, and plan to put a couple of egg turners in there for incubation. I still have work to do on fixing a heating element, thermostat and fans. I finished painting it last night, although the flash revealed some runs in the paint on the left door so I'll have to do it again, but I thought I'd show off what I got so far. I used wooden eggs for the door handles. What do you think?
