In the Brooder
- Aug 24, 2010
I have been using multiple styrofoam little giant incubators over the past two years. I now have an ideal cabinet that was given to me and have designed wire racks and shelves for the eggs and have had many succusful hatches, however not the numbers i should have had. I have used lights and small fans to regulate temperature which is much easier in the summer when the air conditioning is on. Now that winter has set in, i am trying to figure out how to re-do the incubator. I have multiple parts such as heating / wire elements from other parts etc but cannot conclusively figure out what to go online and buy to set up my cabinet with a thermostat, heating device etc. I have looked online over and over but have no idea what wattage/ size heating element i would need, or what to buy to make it complete so that it has a more control-able temperature. I am afraid if i go online and order, i wont get the right stuff or not all the parts i need. any help would be greatly appreciated. I have taken pictures of what I have so far but not sure i can figure out how to post with this. If anyone can help, I will be happy to email. thanks.
