I was wondering .. does anyone have a good recipe for a home made incubator?

Cooler box (those styrofoam ones for transporting fish) + Heatpad/Flexwatt + Thermostat = DIY Incubator.

If you need more details or pics, let me know.

...and i can see you feed your beardies with mice Dolby..i've never thought of doing that..there's no problems with digesting them is there?

No problems at all. Just stick to the "no prey larger than the space between their eyes" rule. Mine get defrost rodents 1-4 times a month. Rat pups are what I recommend as they're soft and furless, but they do have more fat than i.e. young mice. Usually my male gets more as he's younger. I like giving them as a treat and also as a source for extra calcium (and extra fat for the younger one). The male usually gets 2-3 rat pups per feeding while the female gets one 10-15gr mouse (that's about the biggest I would feed an adult).

Pictures are not really that important mate .. i think i can work it out from your list of ingredients Wink
One thing though...I've read that temps for a incubator should lie around the 30-32 degrees mark but i can't seem to find any reliable info on humidity..Anything you can help me with?

Also...is a winter hibernation period necessary in your opinion to induce mating, or can it be at any time?...I've found conflicting advice with regards to that aspect of their behaviour to.

As far as I know, incubating humidity should be about 75-80%, never more than 85%. It's not that critical. As long as they don't mold (too much humidity) or dent (too dry), you should be fine.

I would advice to allow the BDs to brumate. It allows for the female to have a rest to gain strength for the breeding season, and will also trigger the natural "clock" for mating in both sexes.

Some reptiles don't need it at all (like Leopard geckos) and some won't mate without it (most colubrids). From the info I've been gathering for the past 1-2 years, BDs really should be allowed to brumate if you want to have a succesful breeding season.

I usually keep a 14hr light cycle during summer, and in november I gradually decrease it to 8hr. For a full brumation, you will need to gradually drop their temps too and cease feeding (they can't digest under 35 celsius).

hey peeps thought id continue in this thread in stead of making a new one Smile

as i mentioned earlier my sister and BF had a load of baby beardies and we got freebies .....yay

we had two from them Jitta and Spacka, the hatched on the 26th may 2012 spacka was tiny the runt of the litter but him and Jita got on fine, he seemed to be doing ok (if staying a little on the small side) then recently spacka got ill, wouldnt eat or drink much, was still having small bowel movements but watery and green looking, sadly it died on the 20/10/2012 this weekend just gone Sad, was a sad day and me and the girls made him a little coffin to bury him in.

Yesterday my sister gave me another dragon so Jita has a friend Smile we have named it Boystin, the first pics are of spacka and Jita as lil babys the rest are the two dragons we have now, these are spacka, he never really grew much more than this...
