I built my own incubator using an old fridge i got from a rubbish tip, fixed a light through he hole where a pipe used to go, this was connected to a thermostat, It took 20 minutes work and will hold many boxes of eggs

As long as it doesn't rotate the eggs, a chicken incubator will work.

Yup it doesnt, I found someone selling it for cheap coz he aint hatching any more. But I wont be needing it yet coz my BD's still around 4months old lolz! :)

I made my own. It was actually pretty easy. I didn't use heat tape because it takes to long to heat and cool. I used a Heat coil which heats up faster and cools faster. It has helped me maintain a much more consistant temperature in my incubator. What I love the most about it is that I can use my incubator in the garage in the winter time without any problems!!! It doens't matter if the temperature is -20 or 65 it holds the temperature perfectly.

I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
