    Well, i've decided that my incubator is not efficent enough for me so its going to be "pimped." Just a few questions though

    - in a forced air is the it a exhaust fan with vents for intake, or is it a intake fan withe vents for exhaust?

    - also i want to go with a heating element instead of a light bulb, does anyone have any suggestions for this maybe like a stove element or something.

    - also what is a decent thermostat that doesnt take up too much room? I looked at the wafer thermostat but I dont know if that would be good for this incubator. Currently I have just wired a dimmer switch in which is going to be removed.

    Any help is much appreciated, I just dont want the same results as my last hatch only 1 out of 12
