    I built one of the homemade incubators out of a mini fridge and I have hatching. yeaaaa yeaaa! I pray to the Lord that he is healthy. I am so nervess . I had to get rid of my girls but they didn't order out my eggs!!! I built a hatcher out of an colman cooler. I find that the hot water switch in the hatcher is not working the greatest but is doing it.

    I put paper towls then slate down to hold heat then the rubber shelf matting on that. a jar of water with a sponge square sticking up out of the middle and my hygrometer. wow this was so stinking simple to build. Thank you all.[​IMG]

    Congrats on your hatch! I'd love to see a pic of your incubator and hatcher.
