    My husband picked up some nifty keen-o egg turners and wants to do our next batch of eggs using the turners.

    I am worried that since our incubators are both still air (LG and Hova) that the stratification of the hot air will mean some eggs are too hot and others are too cool.

    Do we need to install fans before we try using the turners?

    I do not have fans in mine as of yet and have and egg turner in mine. I have had good hatches from my eggs.
