    That will work find but you might want to get a computer fan and mount it in the middle, this bator has a spot for it so you would just need to buy a fan from Best buy or somewhere that carries. Try http://www.incubatorwarehouse.com they have a lot of things for icubators.

    That's the same one I bought! It works great and has been for over a year. The main issue is that it won't hold temperature unless the room it's in is over about 75 degrees F. So I built an insulator for mine and can use it down in the low 40s with no temperature problems. Otherwise its a great incubator. I would agree with the idea of adding a fan. Although I bought one off eBay for like $3 so is suggest that as it's the cheapest route.

    Here's what I did to mine

    Just remember to put in a analog thermometer or two just to check how accurate the one in the incubator is. Always run it 24 hours prior to egg placement just to make sure it is functional...
