This will be my first year breeding ball pythons and I’m trying to determine whether to invest in an incubator or attempt to build my own. I would love to get feedback from some of the more experienced breeders here as to what brands/methods you have had success with.
I’m only expecting one clutch this time around, so I don’t need a super large incubator starting out. It will be at least another year until my next largest female is ready to breed, and probably three years from now until I can expect to have more than two or three clutches at a time. So I don’t necessarily need a large commercial incubator to start out, but I’m hesitant to attempt a DIY build because I would hate to have it not work properly and to lose my only clutch of the year.
Does anyone have recommendations for a small to medium commercial incubator, or suggestions for a relatively foolproof DIY project? Thanks in advance!
