    I thought this would be a fun thread to start!!!

    Here is the inside or my incubator. I'm thinking of adding more eggs though.

    I have added my racks since these photos and I will add photos later. I have 103 eggs in it at this time and it will hold probably at least 250. Holds temp within 1/2 of a degree. So far so good...

    I did a hatch in a cardboard box a few times when I was younger. Got 6 our of 12 eggs to hatch, but 2 had leg problems and had to be put down... No temp regulator except a lamp hung from a fixture... one thing I remember best is that when they all hatched, I took the whole bator out to the trash and there was no clean up!!!

    My current bator is a wood one... no pics uploaded at the moment.
