    Hi folks - I am getting ready to start my first batch in my hova bator that I just got (24 egg). I can get the fan to go with it but am hesitating. We've had it on since last night & it seems to be holding steady at about 99.5 (still air). The fans are noisy (plus the additional expense). Am I making a big mistake if I give it a go with the still air?
