    what kind of computer fan do you need for a little giant incubator? will it need to run constantly?

    would a 80mm computer case cooling fan work?

    Believe it or not, I wandered into Radio Shack- not as clever as most, bought a converter and DH stuck wires in each hole from the pc fan, electric taped it securely and there was no more thought, just done! Good luck! Now as for what you would like it for, I am not to bright for that! LOL
    Hope all is going well down in GA! [​IMG]

    Quote:use the little giant for your hatcher... works great since you have a "better" incubator"

    sorry I am not smart at this incubating stuff yet but would I not need a fan in the little giant if I was only going to hatch in it?
