The video shows how to make a simple yet effective egg incubator using common materials. It turns out that modern chickens are not always effective mothers. No one knows what caused this shift in behavior but they get distracted often – leaving their nest and eggs unprotected. For this reason, more and more farmers take it upon themselves to hatch the eggs (and no, we don’t mean by nesting over them!)


According to the video, the main thing to keep in mind when setting up the incubator is that it needs to maintain a certain temperature and humidity to make the eggs hatch. The temperature should be around 97-100 degrees and humidity between 55-70%. Anything below or above that is harmful to the embryo so getting it right is vital to the survival of the chicks. So get it dialed in before putting the eggs in it.

The materials needed for the incubator are the following:


  • Styrofoam cooler – any size is good
  • Lamp
  • Light bulbs – 25 watts is recommended
  • Duct tape
  • Temperature and humidity monitor
  • Bowl and sponge for water – to provide humidity inside the cooler
  • Chicken wire – quarter inch squares
  • A picture frame with a glass or plastic front

Once the incubator is set up, it is only a matter of maintaining the environment until the eggs hatch. Check the levels religiously to make sure that the temperature and humidity stay inside their recommended range. If the incubator gets too hot, poke holes on the side of the cooler to lower the temperature and you can control the humidity by adding or removing water as needed.

You should also rotate the eggs three times a day, turning them 1/3 of a turn each time. This is done so that the eggs don’t rest on the same side. Doing this will move the embryo, which is important. In the last 3 to 4 days, stop turning them and raise the humidity to 65-70% to make the shell easier for the chick to break through.

Ok, here’s the video:
