    the circulated air is so the warm air thats the right tempature goes throughout the incubator and their arent cold or hotter spots as a good place to get an incubator i would go to i really like them

    I like forced air incubators the best...the chicks dry faster and I agree with above it circulates the air around for no cold spots...I love my hovabator.

    yeah with still air the temp needs to be 101 and with fan forced then its 99.5 cause the fan circulates the temp and air
    i took my old still air and use it for the lockdown and then i bought two fan forced ones but sadly one of the fan ones died after a few days of having it on i was just testing it so now its a still air with a broken fan lol
