I really want to hatch some of our own eggs. I even ordered bantam chicks this year hoping we'll someday have broodies. But I also want to have an incubator, you know... just in case (just in case I want to order some eggs and no one in the coop is broody ) So, what's a chick to do? Spend $$ on a bator I know will do the job well (Brinsea Eco) or make my own when I have most of the parts and can get the rest for cheap? DH is home in the winter, I'm home in the summer so being around to check in/turn eggs is not an issue. Those of you that have made your own bators: tell me about them! Will they get the job done? Will the headache of construction be worth the money I'll save by making my own? Perhaps making one is no headache at all? I need help!!
