    well im in the middle of making a new bator out of a cardboard box but i was thinking ill do it still air this time but what do you think your hatch rate was better with still air or fan assisted and also what temp and humid do you think it will have to be for a still air * im doing the dry incubation methode* thanks

    Still air works but moving the air around is better, and not too expensive. A used computer fan would work well in many cases.

    It's easier for me to know I have one true temp and not have to worry about thermal layers cooking or chilling the eggs.
