    I made my first one out of a cardboard box and a heat lamp.They were all fully formed but did not make it as I added too much humidity.

    Because I don't have the pics saved where I can find them, here's the link to the one I made last year:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=11774&p=2

    I hatched 20 some chicks with it last year (except for the last 3 days and then used my brother's) and I started 15 in it this year, only 12 made it to day 18, 8 of them hatched. They were put in a LG bator after a couple of days, then put back in my homemade bator on day 18 (had other eggs in LG bator).

    Here is my homemade bator. I now have an auto humidity pail. (not in pic) I have $250 invested counting the pail. It holds 240 eggs and has an auto turner made for the Sportsman.

    Here's mine, I currently have porcelain D'uccle eggs in there.
    And yes, there is a lid with a glass pane on it.
