Stained only the outside, was not sure something in the stain might be harmful to eggs/chicks! There are nothing in the incubator right now but in about 12 days I will be placing some eggs in for hatching. At this time I spayed bleach and wiped down mild, But I am concerned that when I do have eggs in the incubator that bleach may be harmful??

You will more then likely need to stain or paint the inside to seal the wood, so the moisture don't get into the raw wood and warp, mold, mildew, ect if you do it now it should be ready for eggs in 12 days. We do ours in the winter and by egg time we know its ready.(Use a low VOC stain) Good luck Steve
