    Default Queen Cell Incubator / Box Thingy ?

    I am looking for a small temperature controlled queen cell incubator that I could plug in to my cigarette lighter of my truck when taking cells to be installed. I have seen them advertised before; but currently, am unable to locate one. I think one of them is made in new zealand. I have already checked mann lake and dadant's websites and was not able to find them. If anyone can tell me where I can find one that would be greatly appreciated!

    Make one, use an inverter for the power supply. We talked about it here:

    Default Incubator thingy

    I use an old water bed heater, connected to an accurate t-stat. Be sure to put a couple of holes in your incubator as cells need to breath. I have the water bed heater on the floor of the insulated box. I put a damp rag over that, and my frames sit on cushioned frame holders. I actually have two holes about 3/4 inch id diameter on oposite side of the box, with a small computer cooling fan mounted in one to draw air across the cells.
    Make sure you design your portable incubator with travel in mind, wouldn't want to damage a virgins wings on the 10th or 11th day.
    Peggjam was right about the inverter. Much easier to wire everything A/C.

    Just use a car inverter go to the feed store and buy you a chicken incubator that is all they are. Rossman Apiairys catalog had one for sale in there but they wanted a fortuen for somthing you can also hatch chicks in and will cost about 80 on ebay. Sometimes less.
