    I'm considering getting six eggs off of craigslist for hatching. I want to build a small incubator but am unsure how to do it. Is there one I can do with a plastic tote. I've looked at some of yours but I'm still a bit lost....

    Did you do a search above for "home made incubators"? There are tons of different ones !! I know Miss Prissy has a few that she made if you search her name I belive you can see them !!

    Good luck, what kind of eggs are you getting ??

    WOW !!!! 33 cents for hatching eggs ??? [​IMG] Why so cheap ? did you ask ??

    What a great deal [​IMG]

    Yah know you can buy a cheap LG (little giant) for about $40.00 and then add a computer fan for another $5.00 they arent the best of incubators but do the trick if you can keep an eye on the temp and stuff... Was just thinking that might be just as easy for yah !!!
