    Why did I ever look at this part of the forum?

    I knew it would not end well. I knew I would catch the fever. Why did I do it???

    Just built a Cooler-bator and am getting the settings stable. Going to get 3 dozen eggs on Friday and see what happens.

    Cooler- free off CL
    Window- free off CL
    Fan- free off old computer
    Light fixture- free off old house.
    Wire- free off CL
    Thermostat- 8 bucks
    Duct tape- 1 buck
    Temp/Humidity meter- 9 bucks

    Waiting to see if the 19 dollar incubator actually works- Priceless.

    Curse you chicken math! Curse you!!!!

    Lol., well done. Chicken math will get you every time.

    I'm building a 1/3 acre (or so) Chook run and Chicken math keep making me realise I can fit so many different types of chooks (I'm having several runs within the run and they can be free ranged out side).

    I hope your first incubation using it goes well, I'll be watching with anticipation [​IMG]

    Let us know when the eggs go in.

    The incubator is turning off at 100 and back on at 97 degrees. Just a slight adjustment and I will have it dialed in. [​IMG]
