Build a solar heated bird egg incubator
from your old satellite dish

Obsolete satellite discs that are your property* can only be used.
Minimum material is required to build a bird egg incubator.

A discarded satellite dish
Piece of thin plywood
Storage batteries
Length of chain
Some fixtures
Solar panel

Position the finished solar heated birds egg incubator in an area that is not exposed to high winds. Solar heated bird eggs Solar heated incubator Excess movement of the egg incubator will
make controlling the correct incubation
temperature difficult. To build the solar
heated bird egg incubator your obsolete
satellite dish will be the base of the egg
incubator. Remove all fittings from the
discarded dish. When working with the
satellite dish ( bird egg incubator base )
prevent damaging the protective surface.
Incubator solar heated

have an
all weather coating and will not rust if left in good condition

Drill a hole into the center of the dish. This will form the start of the bird egg incubators base.
The hole must be positioned accurately to ensure that the base sits horizontal to the ground. If the measurement does not allow the base to sit level then rotating the bird eggs may become a problem.

    Fit a stainless steel bolt, nut, rubber washers and chain support into the hole. The rubber washers will prevent heat escaping from the bird egg incubator. Before assembling the solar heated bird egg incubators base commences use the perimeter of the dish to mark out the bird egg incubator shape. Cut out the desired shape and sand the rough edges back to a smooth surface. Drill a hole into the center of the incubators cover and slide the cover onto the base support chain. Position the bird egg incubators cover at a suitable height and then apply a clear silicon to hold in place. Solar egg incubator

Detachable incubator walls can also be used to expand interior space of the incubator. Cleaning and maintenance of the solar heated bird egg incubator is also simplified.

   Plywood molded to the incubators base circumference will make an ideal wall

    Select plywood that is free from preservatives. This will protect bird eggs from contamination. Mark a spot on the bird house base where the wall commences. Measure around the perimeter of the dish up to the position where you require the bird house wall to finish. Transfer this length on to the bird house wall then mark the height of the wall that is suitable for your bird house design. Cut out the wall to these measurements and dress the edges of the plywood with medium grade sandpaper. Shape the wall to suit the circumference of the dish. This can be achieved by using flexible plywood ( approximately three ply ) or molding a heavier plywood with the use of water and pressure. When the desired shape is obtained dress the wall with a fine sand paper and select a suitable finish that complements the appearance. Fasten with counter sunk fittings to create a smooth, safe surface that will not damage bird eggs.  Solar details and measurements can be obtained from the movie

An egg incubator can be a simple container that has a basic heating system and attractive packaging to entice an unsuspecting consumer.
This form of incubator has a simple lamp contained within the incubator body to provide heating.
The incubation failure rate for this type of heating system is very high.

A successful incubation of eggs should produce around 80% of live, healthy chicks.
An incubator that relies on a simple filament light will generally only produce a small batch of live chicks.

Most incubators are designed to incubate the eggs and dry the new chicks. The birds are then transferred to another holding area.

The top range of incubator will have an array of time saving controls and heating systems that will help to eliminate most human errors.
These forms of incubators for eggs are controlled by micro computers and return the highest rate of successful hatching.

Humidity ventilation birds eggs

The fans and heaters are weather proof and have double insulation for protection.
The heaters and fans are on a clearance sale at the moment and prices have been drastically reduced.

The loss of a bird eggs weight by evaporation during the egg incubation period can be up to 12 percent.
If the humidity level is to high in an egg incubator the bird egg cannot breathe.A ventilation system should be fitted to the incubator

Humidity, ventilation and eggs

Egg incubators should have a humid environment within the incubation chamber that is not to low. If the humidity level is to low the membranes of the egg may dry out and the bird embryo may not be able to rotate within the egg.
A humidifier/vaporizer for creating humidity within an incubator.
The humidifier for bird eggs has built in ventilation that can be adjusted to suit any stage of the egg incubation.

The vaporizer is very compact and economical to operate.

A low voltage transformer or battery (not included) is used to power the bird egg humidifier.
The size of the small humidifier/vaporizer is 90 mm diameter (3.7 inches) and 60 mm high (2.4 inches).

Bird egg rotation

Ventilation is important in the incubation process.
Egg rotation is also performed by nesting birds to remove the egg from the surrounding waste products that becomes trapped in the nest. The embryo is also repositioned in an area within the shell that has fresh nutrients.

Ventilation and egg incubation

Ventilators for the incubator should be fully opened when chicks emerge from the egg.
If a bird is removed while still in a wet state, death of the chick may result.
A heater can be placed within the chick area to help in drying the birds.

humidity, ventilation and egg incubation

A one hour time period would be the shortest time permitted for birds to be left in the birds egg incubator after hatching and up to twenty four hours the maximum.
The chick should be able to walk and appear active shortly after incubation.

Dehydration is possible for birds that are left in the egg incubator for to long.
A ventilation system should be used at this final stage of the incubation.
The humidity level that is maintained during incubation can be reduced or stopped when all the chicks have hatched.

Ventilation and eggs

Air flow within an egg incubator is important and most vital towards the end of the incubating period.
requirements for air increase as the incubation period progresses and once the bird embryo starts breathing it is important to increase and maintain the larger airflow.

Proper ventilation also removes the carbon dioxide within the incubator for bird eggs.
The When adjusting the air flow a variation to the level of humidity may need to be corrected.
The air flow must not be compromised while attempting to balance the humidity level.

Humidity in a egg incubator

Maintaining the correct balance of humidity while incubating bird eggs is easier with a build in automatic humidifying system that simplifies the need to balance the air flow / humidity ratio.

Ventilation in a egg incubator

An incubator that controls the rate of humidity and also allows control of the ventilation rate will have a high degree of success in bird egg incubating.
The humidity and ventilation system of the incubator should be adjustable. Bird species that dwell in a wet environment loose egg weight at a quicker rate than birds from a drier environment.

The fans and heaters are weather proof and have double insulation for protection.
The heaters and fans are on a clearance sale at the moment and prices have been drastically reduced.

The relative humidity of a nest full of bird eggs that are being incubated by the bird can have a humidity range of 30% to 50%.
This level of relative humidity will not be achieved by using an artificial heat source alone when incubating a clutch of eggs.

An artificial incubation method will require the addition of humidity to the incubator chamber.

Humidity may be preserved naturally when eggs are incubated by the bird in a nest.
Control of ventilation and control of humidity in a birds egg incubator is required for consistent hatching results.

If the humidity level is to high then the bird egg will not loose enough moisture.
A humidity level that is to low in the incubator will result in eggs that loose excessive moisture.

Humidity in an incubator can be controlled by adjusting the ventilation system, heating and control of the air flow if this is supplied by a fan or other system.

To check if the correct level of humidity is being provided to the egg during the incubating process an egg can be candled to inspect the size of the air sack.

An air sack is formed in all bird eggs and this pocket of air will increase or decrease during incubation.
A smaller air cell than normal may indicate a humidity level that is to high when using a bird egg incubator. If the air sack is to large this may indicate the level of humidity within the bird egg incubator is to low.

Ventilation and humidity controls that are fitted to egg incubators will need to be balanced for each individual bird species to produce successful results.

Operate incubators in the position that is recommended by the manufacturer. Humidity and temperature levels can be uneven within the egg incubator if it is operated with a tilt. This humidity and temperature distortion can be more apparent in a still air incubator.
