    Hi everyone. My first incubator has just arrived at the post office, I am so excited. I am leaving right now to go pick it up at the post office. I all of a sudden had a thought where should I put it? Is there certain things in a room that would make things better? I though maybe my bathroom or my living room? Where does everyone put theirs? I guess I want to know what works best for everybody.
    Thanks

    Put it where the temperature will be somewhat constant, avoid putting front of windows or in drafty areas. Mine is in my kitchen out of the way.

    Mine is in our front room (we don't use it that much). I have it on an interior wall away from the windows and the vents.

    I have one in the sun room with chicken eggs. I put it in there because it is quiet and less busy. I also have one in the dinning room with goose eggs and i have a humidifier in there. I thought would help due to these eggs need more humidity. Keep it in a place that has a constant temp and no drafts.
