    Okay so this new one has a fan that seams to only run when the heat needs to come on......so do I do it as a still air or as a forced air for temp? I was thinking set it for 100. It's held steady temp for over 24 hours now, without a single change.....unless I open the door of course. LOL

    I would treat it as a forced air bator unles the directions that came with it says differently. Good luck on the hatch and welcome top your addiction. [​IMG]

    I think I would wire the fan to stay on all the time.

    Well we were on the lookout for a wine fridge to convert to a bator, found a Exoterra incubator mini fridge style. It had only been used once and was to small for the people, and they were asking the same as everyone with wine fridges. We figured it was in great shape, if it doesn't meet our needs as is, it already has everything in it, for us to modify. If needed. However it's holding awesome.
