    Some of you have heard about my styro-bator that I have been building lately; so far, I've got the homemade turner, with egg carton in it already(GopherBoy's idea), the light bulb,(plug-in) the mesh wire in the bottom, the counter lining stuff(to protect chicks from mesh wire), and a small bowl in the bottom. Still need to add picture frame glass for a window on the top, hum./temp. meters, case fan(PC fan) and i think that's about it right now.
    But there's one issue; the case/PC fan! Since the light has a single wire that plugs into the wall(which means no other wires or anything), we aren't sure how to hook up this case fan! [​IMG] [​IMG] It has a little white square thingy on the end of 2 green/red thin wires. My dad got the idea of connecting the small wires to a battery thing, which is a plug-in. hard to explain, but he knows how to do it.
    Any ideas?

    Cut the plug off an wire it to an old power supply for a phone or something similar. It should say (output: 12V DC) or something close.
