I love that incubator. I will refer to it when I build mine. I am still looking for a large wine cooler on craigslist. All I find are smaller ones or large ones that are working and so they want more than I wanna pay lol. I may have to take out an ad. Those baby chicks are so cute on your byc page looking out the glass incubator door!! They were saying, "Hey come and get us outta here!"
You are quite an engineer. I built a still air incubator last year with limited results so I was going to convert it to a forced air and decided I needed to start from scratch. Love your ideas but I don't think I'm going to go to the extent you did. Great job.
That was fantastic. Incredible work. I would sure love to get my engineer friend build me a thermostat. I might even think about switching my old wine cooler over to incubating. Hmmm.
Congratulations on your hatch. Do you think the thermostat didn't keep the temperature high enough after all? I'm just curious why the hatch was so late. I just have a hovabator and I have a devil of a time keeping the temperature steady as the eggs develop and then the humidity change at the end.
The thermostat did it's job well. I can't put my finger on why the hatch was late. I used four thermometers but they all gave a different reading. Maybe I erred on the wrong side. Next time I would definitely invest in a proper incubator thermometer. I think keeping a steady temp/humidity reading has a great deal to do with where you put the bator. I certainly found it harder than I imagined.
Thanks for the feedback.
