    I mounted all the electrical components to the lid for easy access to hand turning the eggs and easier clean up after the hatch. I used PVC for the egg tray frame so that it will clean and sterilize better than the wood frame I have used in the past. I decided to mount everything to the lid to give me more space and reduce clutter giving me more room for my peahen eggs. With the four water bottles for heat sinks and a large pancake fan 115-volt that I happened to find laying around my temperatures are staying at 99.8 in every spot Center Corners everywhere. Humidity holding at 55% I know that's a little high for the two chicken eggs I am running in there for my test but this will ultimately be for pea eggs so should be about right

    100% hatch the cooler Bator test is completely successful. At day 18 the eggs were moved into the old microwave incubator that from now on will serve as the Hatcher
