    I'm going to set up a second LG to use as a hatcher only. Is the fan really needed for the last three days or can I get by without. Would you spend the extra money ?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    I think that you can do without it, but I would spend the extra money and get one.

    a fan actually circulates the air to maintain a certain temp
    but it also dries the chicks quicker
    i'd say get the fan
