    I am looking for one. I found one for the price of 10.00 on craigslist. Unfortunately someone else saw it before i did. Otherwise I'd be on the road after it right now!

    Has anyone here found one for a great price??

    it actually didn't cost me anything! [​IMG] I just found things around the house, like a cooler, lamp, temp. gauge, etc. You may have to buy some things like a cooler(at wal-mart or some other store) and temp./humidity gauges. I already had most of these things. Look up online how to make a homemade bator and you will find lots of creative ways! [​IMG]

    Quote:ALSO, the bator works quite well! [​IMG] I have steady temps. all the time and right now 1 out of 4 eggs are fertile in the bator. One is on day 9 and it's wiggling! My first time too! [​IMG]

    The bator that MissPrissy used is VERY popular when making homemade bators. look on her page or contact her to find out how to make it! [​IMG]

    Will do...have plenty of old coolers just none of the other stuff...

    That would be so neat to see! Think I'll search for missprissy's post.

    I think you can make a bator at around $20 or so. I went from a $50.00 bator to a $150 bator and am going to a $600 in january. Missprissy has some cool Ideas and also some people have made a fridgeabgator
