In the Brooder
- Mar 3, 2014
Last weekend I decided I wanted to make an incubator instead of buying one, so I searched and searched and finally found one that was easy and cheap. It is made out of a Styrofoam cooler with a 15w light bulb a temp/humidity gauge, a jar with water, and a sponge. The first time I turned it on I had a 40w light in and it got up to 120 degrees, second time I switched to the 15w light but its been in the low hundreds (102-108) I put some holes under the light on one side and over the gauge on the other (3 rows of little holes made by a small screw driver) the temp has gone a little bit down (106) since the holes....my question is, should I add more holes or something else?????
