    Do quail eggs need a fan during incubation? If they do, what can I do for a cheap, decent fan for my incubator? I heard of someone just using a dollar store fan, does anyone have any brand or something to recommend?

    So do you think I will need a fan for my still-air 2150 Farm Innovators incubator?

    No just run your temp 101 to 102. It'll work fine.
