 Home made incubators

I have an 11 year old gecko who unfortunatly got pregnant not too long ago. She’s very small compared to most adult leopard geckos and as you can see she’s really old. When she became pregnant she got pretty sick and had alot of trouble shedding and digesting food. Yesterday she had one egg and it was infertile. From experience I know more eggs will probably come and if they’re fertile I’d like to hatch them. The last time I had breeding leopard geckos was probably about 10 years ago and I’m just wondering if there’s any new technology for homemade incubators. I live in the high northern ontario so it costs alot too much to get a commercial incubartor shipped to me.
Any new substrates or methods?

i’m not sure about the incubator, but i use this stuff called hatchrite, it comes already mixed with water so that all you have to do is put it in the incubator, put the eggs in it and your set. but other than that i breed a completely different species of gecko so i can’t give any other advice. hope things work out!

I’m just curious as to how this "Unfortunate" incident happend.... If you didn’t want the gecko to get pregnant, wouldn’t the smart thing to do be not to house it with a male?

I don’t know about homemade incubators, but you can get hovabator incubators pretty cheap...

I’m sorry if this is a dumb question, but with the incubators that are store bought. All you have to do is buy that hatchrite? And you don’t have to do any of the water ratios to get to get the right humidity and stuff?
