    I'm looking at getting a wine fridge (similar to pic attached) to use as an incubator, anyone else done this? What size heat cord did you use? Did you just drill a hole in the rear & poke the thermostat sensor through?​

    I have done that. I can't remember what wattage my heat cord was, but yes I stuck the heat cord evenly throughout the cage and drilled a hold for the thermostat probe.

    Thanks. Did you remember if you needed a fan in it or was it too small to require one?

    I have done similar with larger front opening 'drink fridge' in which I have a computer fan, circulating air. Heat cord mostly on bottom of fridge and themostat probe half way up! Workes well!
