DIY Cabinet Incubator - I see cabinets come up on Craigslist for free all the time. I think I might pick up the next one I see and build this for when we get low on chickens, lol.

This has some good ideas going. But I think if would be impossible to keep the chicks inside the brooder box when you open the door. I think a two section door would be better.

Save $ for Eggs: Make Your Own Incubator

homemade chicken incubator - cooler, 60 watt light bulb, dish of water, thermometer. 90* all times, mark eggs on one side and turn them 3 times a day for 21 days. Make sure water in dish at all times. Should get chickens. :)

Homemade Scratch -As an alternative to commerical scratch, you can easily mix up your own using bulk grains purchased from your feed store or local grocery store. I use a blend of cracked corn, oats, barley, wheat, flax seed, sunflower seed and raisins... and the girls love it.

I love this butchering station, it's fantastic for poultry and rabbits. Wouldn't be too hard to come up with something similar for larger animals, either.
