    Well, now that I'm getting a bator from Sam (LG Forced air) I've been thinking about getting another one in the near future. There are some of the still airs at TSC for around $40. Are these worth it or should I try to find another used forced air? I would probably use this as a hatcher, but might use it as a second incubator, depending on how many eggs I have. What is the usual success rate with the still airs? Are they a pain in the butt if you plan on hand turning? My current bator I stick something under it and tip the entire bator, would I be able to do this with the still air without any problems with uneven heat?

    You'd spill the water in the channel for humidity turning it this way. A 2nd bator for a hatcher is a good idea and a must for staggered hatches

    I'd use sponges for the humidity. I actually really like using sponges, because I can cut a hole in the sponge, insert airline tubing INSIDE of the sponge, and it just, well, I don't know, but I like this method, lol.
