    Sorry, I didn't know how to start the subject.
    I just wanted someone to Please list out the materials, the gadgets and items needed to make an incubator?
    I know there's videos on youtube, but when they list out the items needed, it confuses me on which specific one should i pick?
    I don't want to make any terrible mistakes when im building mines.
    I don't live in a country where these items are avilavail right around the corner, so i have to order these things online, and the only places i can order from are Ebay and Amazon.
    Can anyone help list out the items and materials needed to make one?
    Thank you

    Can you order this? This is all you will need aside from housing and is probably the simplest route to go in your situation:

    https://www.amazon.com/IncuKit-Mini-Tabletop-Egg-Incubator/dp/B078SH8DT2

    You could mount that in a small styrofoam cooler, an aquarium, etc, and it will run the whole incubator for you. You can even purchase a turner motor and build or buy a turner and hook it up to it and it will run an autoturner, if you wanted.

    Wow, its amazing,
    Does it only have 1 more left? I don't see others cause, I'll have to wait a few days to order it?
    Also does it come with a manual?
    I really wanna see an example of it being used on something?
    I'll be ordering this for sure
    Thank You!
