    Okay Ive never done this and would like to. Is it alot of work. And what about the Square-Hova-Bator Incubator. This comes with or without the fan is it important? Is their a good web page I could study.

    The Hova Bator is a good incubator but always get the fan it really increases the hatch rate.I have 2 with the fans and then their better model the Genesis-that one is super easy to use and has a big viewing window.If you have no experience go with the genesis and the auto turner..all you have to do is monitor the humidity-it has a preset chick temp.
    It's a bit more expensive but it's worth it with a real good hatch [​IMG]

    I agree, definitely get one with a fan in it. It helps keep the temps more stable. I found the still air fluctuate too much and put the hatch at risk. The Genesis is awesome. I have two of them and they never let me down.

    I would choose the Genesis over the standard Hovabator any day, personally!
