    Just wondering if anyone knows if the Sportsman incubator has spots within it that vary in temp. Hot and cooler spots I guess you could say. I have heard they do have some degree of variation, but little. Thanks, Perry..

    The sportsman has a fan in it so I would say no..the temp should be consistant throughout. The correct setting is 99.7 F for forced fan incubators.

    Just wondering if anyone that owns one knows and has checked the temps in various places in the 'bator' knows any actual results or findings.

    When I still had mine both ran a full degree cooler in the bottom. The upper 3/4 was pretty consistant, all but the corners. Since going to the Ova Easy that has not been an issue.

    Ok, which temp should be 99.7? The air temp or the weasel? I'm guessing the weasel?
