7400 competition entry: Periodic egg turner for incubator

Posted on Monday, November 5th, 2012 in 7400 contest, contest by DP

Do you need an incubator for hatching eggs?  T0mpr1c3 shows you how to easily make a homemade egg incubator:

This is a project from a couple years ago, which I published on the members’ pages at the Backyard Chickens forum: An automatic egg incubator with PID temperature control and periodic egg-roller, built into a microwave oven. The rotary egg turner employed the microwave turntable and a stationary lattice containing the eggs. A timer circuit comprising a 74HC4060 counter and CD4013 dual flip flop set the turntable in motion several times a day, rolling the eggs.

Check out the video after the break.
