    You can make your own several of us did on here they work great. If you do a search and type in homemade incubators you will come up with several people who made them & with the instructions & supply list.
    Here is the one I made

  5. You may want to check your local or look on ebay. There may be folks who used their incubator once and are selling it at a discount price.

    CHeck with any of your local farm suply stores. We have Thiesens and Norbys in this area along with tractor supply. Make sure you ask if you dont see any since they might be able to order if they dont keep them in stock. Most of these are still air bator, I use still air and dont do to bad. Just remember that in the beginning you will have to experament and if you only want to hatch a few get at least a dozen eggs. I just had the best hatch so far but it was also with my own 15 out of 19 eggs hatched. I also have 2 home made bators but I still usually use my store bought one for hatching. Be careful if going to ebay, most people spend more then if they would go to the store after you add shipping. Just dont get discouraged if your hatches dont start out very good. Good luck Jenn

    The homemade incubators are working great. It is also a fun project to do with your children (if you have children).
