Can you have too much air movement in an incubator?

    I am building an incubator out of an office fridge (https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=72494-the-great-incubator-project) and was planning to use a fan out of an old computer that I had but I think the little 3 inch fan just doesn't have enough power. So I got this bigger fan out of an old overhead projector but got to wondering if it was possible to have too much air movement in the incubator.. I don't remember seeing anything about this in any of the threads I have read on BYC..

    Opinions??

    No. My fridge had a house fan in it an it did fine. You can check out my incubator camera an see how muck air is moving in my cabinet incubator.
