    They can hatch without a fan.... No worries.. just keep an eye on the temp... I don't know if it is a good idea but I would open it daily... as if I was hand turning.... Just hang in there!!! It will be okay... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You may even choose to hand turn at this point and move them around as you do so you don't end up with any in a particular "hot spot"... which you may not have anyway...

    I hatched lots of eggs for years with a still air.... they still hatch.

    If you have a heating pad, put it in the bottom of the incubator, and monitor temperature.

    Good luck.

    I put the eggs in another incubator that has duck eggs in it. Just my luck I've had problems with infertile, scrambled shipped eggs, humidity and temp problems. I feel like it's not ment to be [​IMG]
