    Hi everyone -- Day 7 today. Eggs are looking good. I'm planning to take some to school tomorrow to candle with my son's class I'm experimenting with a little cooler with a hot water bottle in the bottom of it and setting a styrofoam egg carton on top of that & padding it with towels.

    I'm working on getting the temp of the water right to get a good temp inside the carton.

    Anyone have any ideas or experience with improvising an incubator for an hour?

    You could get an inverter at any auto supply store and then have power right from your cars cigarette lighter.
