    What size is the fan? I used a cordless phone power adapter, spliced the wires on both the adapter and the fan and wired them together. Then I used the age old favorite, duct tape, and mounted it on the window. But the fan I have is kind of small.

    The 'blower' part of the fan is the silver piece on the end, and the sucker part is inside the bator, on the opposite side from what you can see. Hope this helps!

    DH attached a phone charger cord to one and I just prop it up in the bator. So far, so good.

    You want to make sure the fan is not blowing directly on the eggs. That's why I mounted mine on the window.
