    Were you there in '09-10? I bought eggs from a little farm on the same side of the road as Tripp's, but forget the name of it. Might've bought eggs from you!

    LOL! We just live here for now. Well, boyfriend has been here for years, me, not as long. I will miss the grounds crew though. Going from inmates doing all of your snow removal and cutting the grass to having to mow 4.5 acres yourself might be rough.

    A regular dimmer switch may not have enough starting current to start the fan, because motors require more inrush current when they first start than a lighting load would. Look for a 'fan speed controller', which is basically a stronger version of a dimmer.

    Depends on the type of fan and how it is wired.
    I've never looked at the particulars of the incubators and how the fan is set up.
    If you could maybe send me a pic of the fan, might be able to tell you a bit better.
