    One with a fan, and one without. Neither with a turner, I'm home all the time so I have no trouble turning them. Anyway, I PREFER the one without the fan. Is that weird??? I think the temp and humididty are more constant in the still air so far. Maybe as time progresses it'll prove me wrong, but so far, I could totally do without the fan. Someone tell me I'm crazy....

    I also have 2 LG's (and a hova). One of my LG's has a pc fan that I added. I have since turned the fan off, the temps won't hold right with it on. When I first put it in there the humidity held better, but the swing in temps is just too much. So you aren't crazy at all!! I like mine without the fan better too [​IMG] But I love the hova, and will probably sell the LG's for more!! [​IMG]

    I bought a Hova 1588 and you would love it. Once going for a couple days and settles in the temp and humidity hold great. When Humidity shows a slight decline I check and it needs water. I do have the turner.. It is truly and plug and play incubator. Well worth the money. [​IMG]
