How to make a fully automatic chicken egg incubator?
Posted by arfannasir 4 years ago
The egg drops 22 meters and doesn't break. It manages to stop within a few millimeters, too.

After watching the "Sprint Cut" on how to peel an egg at http://www.waitless.org/ I was intrigued. I thought this might be useful for Tim and me considering how many hardboiled eggs we eat. So we gave it shot. Results are below (unfortunately, I didn't realize the digital camera doesn't record sound). We're not certain whether it belongs in Handy Tricks or How Not To... Disclosure: Sprint is an advertiser on Instructables, and waitless.org is part of their advertising.

The goal is to reduce speed of my Egg drop contraption but still spinning to keep it accurate.? Basicly its this. 8 blades on a octagon frame then String and then my shock absorbing egg carrier. What way would I want to set my Blades so that it doesn't speed through the air?

HervÃ© This, a French chemist, loves experimenting with food and the science of cooking. His mission in life is to reveal the science that lies behind the mystery of cooking. This has world-wide acclaim and his experiments just rock. He's unboiled an egg using sodium borohydride, and you can even try this at home using Vitamin C.I particularly like this segment of the article:"There is a quail's egg that has been standing in vinegar for three years. The acid has attacked its shell and made it translucent. By osmosis, it has swelled up to about four times its original size. HervÃ© says that it has the same consistency as a hard-boiled egg and could be eaten in a salad."Intrigued? Read on...

Kinder Surprise eggs are hollow chocolate eggs - the size of a large hen's egg, containing a small toy - usually a clip-together kit of some kind, contained within an ovoid plastic capsule. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinder_SurpriseThe capsules used to be two-part, but have recently switched to having a living hinge attaching the lid section. They're a little under two inches long and about an inch in diameter (the pic in the above link shows the older, two-part design - but they're the same size either way)Surely there's something useful that could be done with these little plastic containers - they close pretty tightly - so I guess they could be waterproofed pretty easily (LED 'floaties' maybe? - although releasing them into the ocean would be littering)

While me and my family are having a holiday in Devon, UK, we came across a local store that sell real Ostrich eggs! This is my first time in my life seeing a ostrich egg, my dad brought one and ostrich eggs are said to taste like normal chicken eggs and a single ostrich egg has a average serving of 18 - 24 chicken eggs... I wonder if anybody has ostrich eggs in their area and ever eaten one...

Did you know that if you leave an egg in vinegar for a few days the vinegar will dissolve the shell of the egg and the egg can bounce!! Post your views on bouncing eggs! Refer the video to see how to make it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrVuag3YCtQ

The secret is quail eggs. I found the quail eggs' membranes tougher than expected, and I had to pinch them to actually crack open the eggs. Quail eggs taste more "like eggs" than standard chicken eggs -- like the difference between a factory-farmed egg and an egg from my neighbor's chickens that eat grubs all day. You can hard boil them too. I started the eggs in cold water, heated it until boiling, let it boil for 1 minute, and then turned the heat off let the eggs sit in the hot water for 7 minutes. Finally, I quickly cooled them under cold water, and the shells were easy to peel.

I hard boil eggs for 9.5 min. But, no matter how I do it.. at least one breaks.
Next week Monday, September 8, we'll be starting up the long-awaited Forbes Faberge Egg Contest. You may have seen the teasers in the newsletter and it is most definitely coming soon.We want to see what amazing decorated eggs you can make. The egg can be real or it can be plastic. The decorations can be traditional or it can be very modern. The materials are up to you and can include high-tech touches. Just don't be subtle about it as the original eggs were completely over the top. You can read more about them here and here.We'll announce the prizes next week along with the rest of the details of the contest.Edit: The traditional way is to blow out a real egg to cut open and decorate. Check out Steps 1 and 2 in this Instructable from KaptinScarlet for a quick tutorial.

On 7-09-13 at around 7:00P.M. the first pheasant egg in the incubator peeped. It made a new crack yesterday next to the first hole like it is going around, but it hasn't done anything more. Is this normal, if not, what should I do? It has been 38 hours. Thanks for any help

Hello everybody I think you might find this exercise fun and at the same time original ideas are needed! Thanks In advance!! I'm studying design and this exercise has become a classic at my school. Since 10 years ago students have tried to reach the objective but also to develop an original and creative solution. The exercise is to develop a kind of device in order to be able to drop an egg from a window in the first floor and land it safely on the ground at a distance that has to be less than 3 cm from it. Plain Parachutes and slides are forbidden as they are too obvious unless they have a distinctive aspect and also you can`t wrap the egg in something soft (like a pillow) and drop it. Important things to take notice are: -The person has to loose all contact with the egg (You canÂ´t hold a fishing rod with an egg on the end of the line and slowly get it down). -It must be a raw chicken egg Thanks!!

Hi, i have to build a toy car or something like it, powered by rubber bands so its no problem, the thing is that it has to travel 31ft on a straight line, and then stop at 31ft and drop an egg. the egg must survive the fall from the car... Any ideas??? I'd consider using some type of braking mechanism. A string wrapped from a front axle to a rear axle would make a great brake. It would work kind of like a cassette tape; winding from one side to the other, and stopping when it's completely transferred form one to the other.

The traditional use of food colouring will probably not work with an avocado's dark skin. Any suggestions other than non-toxic paints? Cheers.

First of all, I wasn't sure where to post this, so I posted it here. Anyways... I'm making an ible (muhahahahaaaaa!) and I need to find something that I saw a while ago... It's a giant Rube Goldberg machine that in the end smashes a custard egg. I think that this won a contest, so why can't I find it??? If you made this or know where it is, tell me pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease!

I just spent around 4 hours making an excel walk through for an Instructables contest, and when I went to add it to the contest, it said, "Sorry, your instructable isn't eligible; it may have been published before the contest entry date." The contest is April 4th to May 1st. What is going on?
