that's the way it's going to sit. i'm going to put a door on it with a 8 x10 clear window in it i think. and the bottom is cut out where i think i'm going to put on of those rectangle hospital bed pans in it. i hope i can hatch in those with out melting it. it's not set in stone yet. i'm thinking of just hatching in this thing.

What did you put on it? or is it made out of fiber-glass? I would question the smell of what-ever you sealed it with. You won't need much of a heat source for being so small and make sure the door seals well. Good Luck!

acrylic paint will be fine...it looked like rosin from fiberglass....having the satisfaction of building your own bator is very rewarding and educational.

i still like a little more work on it. like figuring out how many air holes and where to put them. I'm thinking of putting the light right in the middle of the back. and the HW thermistat in on the right side in the middle.
