    Actually I only have one real question.

    I have done a ton of reading in this forum....you guys really know your stuff [​IMG]

    The one thing I have not seen concerns the fan. I am going to put a compter fan in my bator. My question is...Does the fan run all the time?

    I see that the light is connected to the thermostat but I have not seen any with the fan connected to the thermostat.

    Thank you all in advance for your replies! [​IMG]

    Yes, the fan runs all the time. Good for you, building a bator! We have two or three homemade ones. If you look in my sig line, you'll see a link to the instructions for my Fridge-a-Bator and Cooler Bator.

    Thanks Speckledhen...I have looked at your bators for inspiration already, they are wonderful and were a big help.

    Thank you for the information on the fan. That was the last piece of the puzzle. I cant wait to hatch my first eggs. [​IMG]
