    Do you happen to know how to put a fan into a still air hovabator? Is it worth it? I would hate to ruin a good incubator by screwing up. thanks Crystal

    I was afraid to buy one without the fan...I have seen many fluctuating temps with the still air and chicks dying putting them to close to the heating element in still airs. I will be using mine in a week so I have not experience in this but this is what I have been reading around the forum [​IMG] Good luck! I hear its really easy to add the fan too [​IMG] WHat kink of incubator are you using?

    The fan kit comes with clear instructions [or it did when I bought one]. Fan forced incubators definaately work beter because the distribute heat more evenly.
