A Homemade Incubator

A Homemade Incubator
By Brandi Tait, Alabama This incubator is small, but you can go larger if you use a fan to move the heat. I like to start with between four and nine eggs to improve the chances of hatching with the small incubator. • Take your heat lamp apart. Put the socket on top of a Styrofoam cooler lid and trace the outline of the socket, so you can cut a hole that it will fit perfectly through. Let the cord run out and make sure you can reach the on/off switch from the outside. • Take an 8-by-10-inch picture frame, remove the paper and cut it about 1/2-inch off of each side of the paper. Use it to trace the viewing window in front of the cooler. Wondering how to raise chickens in your backyard?This FREE guide is like enrolling in Chickens 101. Let us send you our FREE Best
