egg incubator

been using a egg incubator to colonize brf jars, works fantastic. you have to use a acu-rite thermometer from wally world , put the probe pad through the vent hole and slip it under the foil to monitor temp of the 1/2 pt jar. its radiant heat, so just pushing a probe thermometer into the incubator will not give accurate jar temp.anybody else tried this ???

temps in jars are usally 1-2 dergees warmer imo. what is the temp of the incubator? mine is at 84. so if it is warmer in the jars, then it would be like 86, 87 the hottest, but i doubt it. puttin tne sensor in the jar itself? i think that would just lead to problems

i was running incubator at 86 , checked jar temp for shits and giggles and found it was way too high, 96 degrees F. checked and calabrated thermometer and tried again , same results. incubator and jar temp were alot different, after working that out things have been going well, several batches done with no problems...

Pretty cool, Tankhead. I've seen these incubators while browsing through poultry catalogs and always wondered about how effective they would be.

I know someone that has a portable one, he uses it to rescue bald eagle eggs from their nests and incubate them during the car ride.  It plugs into the AC adaptor in the car.  You can imagine what wheels that turned... :mushroom2:

take the egg tray out and put jars around the inside edge , it will hold 12 half pint jars, i use a styrofoam incubator, measures 18 by 18 by 8 inches high, just cover the 2 windows on top with foil and tape to hold...
