FREE PLAN for a
BIRD EGG INCUBATOR
The plan to build a bird egg incubator is free for your personal use. Building
the bird egg incubator requires basic tools and skills. Egg incubator plans can
be "modified" to suit different egg incubation
methods. Heaters suitable for the incubator can be found on this web site. The
heater can be built into the incubator during construction or used free
build aTo build the egg incubator the base is the first piece of
plywood cut to size. The base becomes the guiding template for all other bird egg
incubator dimensions. Measurements used for the incubator base will be decided by
the number of bird eggs requiring incubation.

When the size of the incubator has been determined transfer the
measurements to the base of the incubator. This becomes the guide for all
Egg incubator planThe sides and roof of the
egg incubator should be from the same plywood panel as the base if the
incubator is to have a varnished finish. Modifications can be made at almost
any point of the free bird egg incubator plan.
- A1/A2 are equal but larger to A5/A6 by approx 15%
- A3/A4 are equal but larger to A7/A8 by approx
- A5/A6 are equal measurements for the
- A7/A8 are equal measurements for the
- B1 is the minimum height for the incubator +
- B2 This is the height of B1 plus approximately
- B3 Draw a joining line between B1 & B2 after
- B4 These measurements are equal to A7/A8
Bird egg incubatorSuperior insulation for the incubator can be
obtained by using heavier plywood panels. A thick plywood will reduce the
heating cost of the bird egg incubator.
- B1/B5 . B2/B6 . B3/B8 . B4/B7 are equal sizes
- B1/B2/B3/B4 is the the first panel cut and used for template
for the bird egg incubator plan.
- B5/B6/B7/B8 are transferred from the template.
- C1/C2= to A5 plus twice the thickness of the

- C5/C6= measurements to A5 plus twice the
- C7/C8= measurements to the incubators B2/B6
Egg incubatorWhen selecting the plywood for the build a egg incubator
plan the grade of plywood must be of an exterior grade quality. The plywood for
the egg incubator must not contain any chemicals that produce fumes when the
incubator is heated.

Building a bird egg incubatorTimber
approximately two inches square ( 50 mm )
is suitable for building a large bird egg incubator.
Small incubators frames are 1 inch (25mm) square.
Timber framing for building a bird egg incubator should be sufficient to
border the inside of the base sides and four corners. Modifications can be made
when building the egg incubator. Guides to position the roof & runners that
keep the incubator off the ground are required.
Plans for a bird egg incubator
When building the bird egg incubator a viewing panel can be left out if
it is not required. The plans for a bird egg incubator has a perspex window but
safety glass can be used as a substitute. Wood glue, galvanized nails and screws
are used for joining the plywood and framing. The roof for the incubator can be
made from clear perspex sheeting or glass. Perspex helps to insulate the egg
incubator. Perspex panels can have the positioning runners fixed with screws or
nails. An incubator glass
roof will require runners that are glued to the surface.
Plans for a egg incubator
The plans for an egg incubator assembly begins with the base of
the incubator. To start building the bird incubator line the outer edges of the
base with frame timber. All the joints and framing of the bird egg incubator
should be glued and nailed or screwed.
Fix the sides to the base keeping the plywood side flush with the
underside of the base. The upright corner pieces are then placed at the side
The back of the bird egg incubator is the next panel fitted. Ensure that the back
plywood sits flush to the outside of the plywood sides and flush to the
Bird egg incubator
The next step is to fit the front of the bird egg incubator with the edges
flush to the sides and base underside. Flush edges for joining panels allows
extra edging to be used at a later date. This will provide "superior heat
insulation" for the small bird egg incubator.
Place the incubators roof in a position that is suitable for the incubator and
fit the roof guides to the underside of the incubator roof. Use spare timber as
runners for floors to prevent incubators loosing heat from ground
When you are happy with the structural strength of the incubator fill any nail
or screw holes and coat with a suitable covering. Painting will also aid
Bird egg incubators must be of sound construction if insulation is to be
effective. Insulating a poorly constructed bird egg incubator doesn't reduce
Painting the incubator with an undercoat and exterior grade paint will prevent
moisture from penetrating. If the egg incubator needs insulation against heat
then a light colored paint should be applied. The reverse is also true.

EggHeaters keeping pets warm since
To build and heat a incubator the materials you use will be the deciding
factor on the useful life of the incubator for eggs. The use of any material
that has been coated or treated with any chemicals that may be toxic should
be avoided. When using tools be sure that the proper safety equipment and
safety procedures are used at all times. Read and understand all instruction
books that are supplied with any tools and always maintain a clean and safe
working area. Never work around children or unrestrained pets or let them in
the work area unsupervised. The free incubator plans are for personal use
only and have tested for strength and operation and to my knowledge they are
correct and accurate. The incubator plans are supplied without warranties and
guarantee and you acknowledge that you use them and operate all tools and
equipment at your sole risk. The choice of incubator plan and any other
building plans found on this web site and the suitability for the chosen
project is entirely your responsibility. You agree to indemnify eggheater
from any claims, damages, personal injuries and expenses in regards to any
building projects and plans found on this web site. All the free building
plans are for personal use.
