    I have access to an "Isolette" human incubator.
    Will these work for chickens?
    How well?
    Does anyone have any knowledge about them?

    I used to work in a "critical care" nursery. If you're wanting to hatch eggs in an isolette, sorry, but no chance. Human babies can't handle temps of 100 degrees, so an isolette isn't made to hold temps that high.
    It might work well as a brooder, though.
