Greetings, Permies! We've had a chicken death recently, and of course it was one of the ones the kids had picked out and named. So now they wanna hatch a chick to replace her, and I'm wonderin' how we'd go about making a simple, cheap incubator. Can't seem to find a small one commercially like I remember seeing when I was a kid. And besides, if they can be knocked together and it could be a fun-for-kids project, well then why not do it ourselves? Anybody got any simple schematics?

Sorry to read of your lost chicken, it is always a problem when it is also a pet ! I know what you mean about not being able to find an incubator like the old ones,but in a way that is good, as the modern ones, whilst not cheap, are very good. You will know that to get the best results, the temperature and humidity need to be spot on, also, the eggs need to be turned regularly. I have looked at a number of different incubators, and you may find it helpful to visit my blog
