    I've got eggs that are now a staggered hatch due to the blizzard. Put a fan in my still air Hovabator and am impressed with the improvements in my bator - lots of eggs developing! Now I need another to hatch while the others incubate. Will the fan be that important for the last 3 days of lockdown or can I get away with just another still air incubator? Thanks for the input!

    If you only have one fan then I would say that its better for the hatcher to be the one that has no fan but its well worth it to have a fan in both if you can.

    Thanks! I've got an old computer that I might be able to get the fan from but unfortunately I'm an electrical idiot about wiring....
