    Hey guys!
    well, went to wal-mart today, and guess what I found near the ice machine? SOME STYROFOAM ICE CHESTS!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] I was soo excited, and my mom got one for me! And even though I plan on hatching in the Spring, I am gonna make my bator over the winter so I am ready by Spring. [​IMG]
    So here's my supplies so far:

    This is the bator and all the supplies so far(the hum./temp. aren't included but I have them!)

    [​IMG]


    This is a pic of just the ice chest:

    Things left to add:

    *wire
    *water/sponges for hum(although I am doing dry incubating, but I will only add water if it goes down to 25%)
    *glass window
    *new hum./temp. gauges, and a water wiggler?(i will get these on my Birthday probably, but I have some already, but then I can't use the water wiggler on them.

    I may add a homemade turner like some people did, too! [​IMG]


    Any ideas or thoughts?

    How much was your ice chest? I hate Wal-Mart, and this is the ONLY REASON I will ever step foot in there. And I planned to be armed with exact change. [​IMG] Or.. Approximate.

    Quote:We got this ice chest(they also had coolers but this was cheaper) for about $5.50.
    If you don't know where to find it, then look where the store has an ice machine.(like where they sell those $1.00 bags of ice) That's where these coolers/ice chests were! [​IMG]

    I got one of those ice coolers at the Dollar Store during the summer. I don't know if they still have them tho. Good job..can't wait to see more pics of your progress in building it.
