no fan....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am trying my first time with an incubator, the Nova-Bator 1602N. It does NOT have a fan, will that effect the eggs? I am only on day 4, so candling won't truly show me anything yet...just wondering if I already screwed up?!

Lots of people incubate with still air. The main difference is you need to adjust temp as still air should be 101-102F taken near the tops of the eggs. Still air the temp is layered in the bator because it has no circulation.
