    Well i use the Little Giant fan forced incubator and then when it is time to put them in lockdown for hatching i transfer them over to my still air Little Giant so that when i have those hatching i can put more into the fan one cause the fan is suppose to help the egg shell soften for the chicks to bust through

    I dont have any,I am using broody's but im planning one making one homemade.

    I hear people here saying that the HovaBator Genesis 1588 is really good so, i would recommend it.I dont really like LG's though.
