    I have a Little Giant 9200 still-air incubator that I want to turn into a forced-air (or circulated-air incubator)
    I do not have a "fan kit" but i do have a small fan that looks just like the "GQF Hova-Bator fan kit".
    So i am wondering if I can just conect the fan that I have just like you would with the "fan kit".
    Has anyone else done this before?

    Yes you can. Some folks use old computer fans from old PC's. Go for it.

    I only have a Homemade incubator from an old mini-frig that I have installed a humidor fan into, it was not enough to move the air so I put another four inch fan on the lower level and it seems to move air better with a more even heat throughout. I wish I could help more with experience with your specific incubator.
