    Is a Circulated Air Incubator good for hatching eggs?

    Circulated or forced air incubators are actually the preferred type of incubators. They keep the air circulated and "more even" throughout the incubator. A circulated/forced air incubator needs to maintain an average 99.5 degrees during incubation and a still air incubator needs to maintain 101-102 average temp during incubation.
