    well you need a tub for each hatchling so 8 egg avg x 3 but thats a guess only you could end up with more or less.

    6qt tubs work great for hatchlings
    cost varies on how you build it you can anywhere from $40 to $4,000 and up
    incubator you can use a cooler, fridge, pretty much anything that can keep in heat
