question about using a fridge as an incubator
    #3787679 - 02/16/05 03:25 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I have a small fridge which would work good as an incubator. The only problem is that i cant seem to get the temp up to 86. i have a fishtank heater which is set at 86 while the fridge temp will only get to 72. i dont think there are any air leaks. suggestions?

Heat Pad. Most have 3 settings (low, medium & high), which sometimes isnt enough to dial it in perfect. At most pet stores you can buy a dial-a-temp adjuster for reptiles around $12 / $14 bucks.

Set pad on high setting & use dial to zero it in.Works perfect.

if you dont need the fridge in the future you can cut a hole in it and put a heat lamp in that spot connect the heat lamp to a thermostat. You can find thermostats to plug electrical devices in at a pet store. this will allow you to regulate the heat. I've done this in a large fridge works well. Also used the fans fridge to circulate the air.

I have been using a heating pad in an old refridgerator for about 4 mos. now, almost non-stop. I'm surprised it hasn't given out yet, lol.
But I gotta monitor temps and adjust acordingly often.
