Is "thermal air" same as "still air" 100 or 102 degrees? Eggs due to arrive soon! Please/thanks!

    Hello- I just got a Hova-Bator 160n with egg turner. They mentioned a turbo fan, but it is not included (I just sent an email about it to them). Anyway, my eggs are due to arrive Wednesday. Do I set the temp for 102, like they say to do with a "still air"? I'm guessing that without the fan, it's a "thermal air"

    Without a fan it's a still air, and you should set the temperature at 99.5 or 100, with chicken eggs hope that helps!
