    Thats a good incubator go ahead & put a PC fan in it, & you can always add to it like a turner, I have the same one but a lot older. nothing wrong with a HovaBator.

    I highly recommend the hovabator, any model. I have one from 1986 and a new one. The new one is still air. I use the turner for both because I don't have the discipline for hand turning. Silver laced polish are so striking. Enjoy! You will become addicted though.[​IMG]

    I have used this model my self. This was my first incubator. It is a good incubator for the price. If you get it you should change the wafer after every three or so hatches (or once a year) to keep a steady heat

    A PC fan is a computer fan & are about $10 or you may have one laying around, It keeps the air circulating inside the bator & makes it forced air insted of still air, which is a lot better, the fan kit for this bator from GQF will run about $30-$40 & the PC fan will do just as good.
