    I'm getting ready to purchase a incubator for some Muscovy duck eggs, I was wondering if you guys preferred still air or forced air incubator? What's your reason for your preference? Thank you!

    Forced air, because it makes the air temp more even throughout. Usually a Better Hatch.

    I think the forced air is the better of the two I have one Hova Bator 2362n forced air with electric turner, I have one home made forced air manual turn.
