    right i have just switched on my new manual turning fan assisted bator. Its a bit different to what i have used before because the last bator i used i had to put water in for the humidity.but this one i dont. Now its got me thinking what temperature does it need to be at is it the same as normal 39.2......[​IMG]

    I am assuming that is Celcius.... I know Farinheit [​IMG] I know that with at still air bator I believe I was running at 102 at the top of the eggs but with a forced air it's 99.5-100. In a still air the heat rises and there are different temps from top to bottom but with the fan you have more consistant temps throughout.
