    I have a still air bator little giant 9200. I would like to make it one with a fan. I am on day 16 with first hatch so will wait until hatch is done but where should i mount it at. I am thinking about using fan out of a puter. Please any advice would help:)

    There are two half-drilled holes on the top of the bator behind the thermostat. Those are where the screws for the lg fan go. You'll also have to wire it into the power supply.

    Ladybug,

    See my post "Mission Impossible" . I have the same incubator and I didn't bother with wiring it in through the incubator. At least not on this first try. I don't have the auto egg turner anymore, so I just stood the fan on the wire grid near the side of the incubator where the cut out is for the power cords to exit the incubator. I aimed the fan toward a corner rather than at the eggs. With my adjustable AC/DC adapter I start the fan up at the 6V setting to get it going, then switch it down to the 4.5V setting to getting a slower spin on the fan with no obvious vibration.
    Maybe on the next incubation attempt I will try to mount the fan on the lid.
