An incubator is a device simulating avian incubation by keeping eggs warm at a particular temperature range (37.5 °c for chicken eggs) and in the correct humidity with a turning mechanism to hatch them. It takes 21 days to hatch a chicken egg. A thermostat (a circuit with a relay which is controlled by an integrated circuit) is widely used for this purpose. Incubators are commonly made by using thermocol. Commonly a filament bulb or any type of heat source raise the temperature to the permissible limit (37.5°c). Incubators can also be used for hatching the eggs of duck, quail, and other animals.
