what sort of temperature ranges you looking for??
is humidity an issue for bird eggs?

i am a reptile keeper and breeder so i have loads of experience in incubating reptile eggs, i belive the only real difference for birds is that the eggs need to be turned.

i am in the process of developing a thermostat to regulate such an environment, only its designed for reptiles. so it wont turn the eggs.

a basic setup in your case would be a thermostat connected to a heatbulb, a hygrometer, and you can turn the eggs yourself, a more automated setup will require a bit more mechanics

you have to use one ?? i take it this is for an assignment then??

if all you need is the thermostat then you can buy one from a shop i guess

i cant help with the actual programming i just know how the device would work, and how to get the desired results.

you will need a temperature probe, 9700 thermisters are good and work on ADC
i also use HiH-5300-001 humidity sensors, also ADC

you may want a display 16x2 alphanumeric displays are quite good.

then you just need to set your variables so that when the temperature reaches the target temperature it turns the heaters off.

if your in your final year this shouldnt be too much trouble

Even if it's his final year design following your advise will get him into deep sh.t. :D

Turning the heaters off when the target temperature is reached he'll not breed birds, but fry eggs. :)

A two degree temperature overshoot for each heating cycle will easily do that. :(
