    Hello, if I were to install a CPU (computer) fan into my hova bator would it basically turn it into a forced air incubator?

    Thanks!

    I've debated it but I didn't want to try it with eggs already in there and my incubator has hardly been empty since I got it. I should try it out over this winter. I did have a fan running off 2 9v batteries for a week.

    Quote:Yes. The cut-outs are even there at the correct spacings.

    You will need stand-offs and a 12V power supply.

    The Hovabator conversion kit is way too expensive and only differs in that the power supply is built onto the board that fits inside the incubator.
