    makeing a homemade bator out of a thick styrofome ice chest, would it work if i put the light in the top & also the fan, blowing down on the eggs so i could have more room for more eggs or mabe a egg truner, this is the way the hova bator works, other than they use e heating element, i think it will work, plese every body give me an opinion

    I imagine it would work just fine...although you might want to reserve that space for a piece of Plexiglas for a viewing window. Also, I think it helps to have the fan blowing onto the bulb to circulate the warmth.
