Re: Make an Inccubater

There are many diagrams and instructions on how to build an incubator that are floating around the internet if you search for it, it depends on what you want to build it out of.

Here is one example:

Re: Make an Inccubater

I recently made my own incubator out of a cooler. Pretty much all you need is an insulated box, a thermostat, and heat tape. You set it up much like a standard enclosure.

For any homemade incubator, try to poke as few holes as possible to trap heat and humidity. There are only two holes in mine and I sealed both with ducting tape.

Place a couple sealed bottles of water in the bottom of the incubator to help keep temps stable.

If you use an old refrigerator, leave the cooling system intact- a professional is necessary to remove the system so that the old freon can be captured during disassembly.

Keep the incubator in an area that you know will stay cooler than your desired temperature (so your eggs don't over heat).

Yea it is pretty easy, heat tape, a thermostat, and an styrofoam box, cooler, or an old wine chiller or fridge.
