    My Little Giant was a still air, I have now made it into a fully functioning air flowing one using a PC fan. SO! Since I completley forget, what is the rule of thumb for temp in a circulating incubator??

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Mine says when the fan is added to have the temp at 99.5 degrees.

    Egg level temps should be around 100.5 to keep the eggs
    at a 99.5 degree internal temp.

    I stuck a digital oral thermometer through one of the small
    holes in the top of mine and top temp (2 inches from the top
    of bator) runs 101 to 102 with a wiggler temp of 99.5 .

    An LG with a fan will be a totally new bator to you. [​IMG]
