How to Make a Incubator?

Answer

To make an incubator, you need a cooler, light bulb, chicken wire, thermometer or humidity reader and wall picture frame with glass or plastic. Make the observation window using the glass or plastic and tape it around to prevent it from falling. Place the light bulb to provide enough light to the incubator and the humidity reader to keep track of the temperatures in the incubator.

The first thing you will need to do to make a incubator is to lay a 10 to 20 gallon aquarium depending on how many eggs and lay it on its side so that the opening is facing you. Next you will need to cut a piece of plastic that will hang over the front of the aquarium and drape it over the sides. Then place a lamp in the corner of the aquarium with the cord running out of the plastic opening. Next you will need to place a thermometer inside and heat the aquarium between 90 and 100 degrees. The last step you will need to do is place straw or grass clippings in the corner opposite of the lamp, this is where you will place the eggs.
