DIY Home Made Incubator From a to Z




Introduction: DIY Home Made Incubator From a to Z

About: My channel is interested in electronics and doing projects at home with recycled gadgets


We will present to you ( how to make Incubator professionally at home?)

With three videos you can understand the idea of hatching.

The incubator can hatch several kinds of eggs (chicken, duck, ostriches ...).

Hatching rate was 75% , That is my initial experience in making the first incubator.

Step 1: What Do You Need to Start Incubator?

1- plywood used is the 16 or 18 millimeter counter

2- Egg Turner Rotor Motor:

3-(Temperature Controller):

4- moisture meter:

5- computer fan 12V , 1.3A (from an old computer)

6- wires + nails + .....

Step 2: (Body Installation) = Video Part (2)

we will discuss how to install the body of the incubator.

We will select sizes, assembling incubator parts, body paint and sanding.

The best type of plywood used is the 16 or 18 millimeter counter

You can use plywood of the type MDF.

With the sequence of images you can understand how the body of the incubator has been assembled

Step 3: (Electrical Connections) = Video Part (3)

DIY Bridge rectifier + Voltage Regulator circuit)

I will explain the electrical connections of the incubator.

At first you will need an AC source and a DC source.

The AC power supply is a 220 volt power supply.

The required DC value is 12 volts.

You can get a 12-volt DC power supply from the adapter or computer power supply.

    Increase your percentage of hatches by trying dry method.The first day to day 14 there is no water and the herdometer reading is 15%~30%, the lowers u'll get better reulst., but if it is below 15% it is necessary to put in some water so that becomes 15% up. On day 15 ,raise up reading to 65% or ur believing %. Share to me ur result so i dont get wrong my resylt not bcoz of luck. Good luck to all.

    very interesting thing, i guess you could use arduino as timer and temperature/moisture sensor to cut down cost, but that would require some programming
