    Ok so I am buying a still air incubator from my friend for a really good price. But I have heard they need a fan to get the best hatch rate. I am just using it to hatch a few of my own eggs and for other every now and then.

    I was wondering if this fan would work? I was looking on Incubatorwarehouse.com but it was going to be 40.00 dollars for it. This has free shipping and it looks about the same.

    I just wanted someone with more knowledge about these fans, thanks in advance!

    If it isnt going to work I wont waste my money. Thanks again!

    I don't see why it wouldn't work. But be sure and put a screen of some sort over it. I used a small fan from an old computer and a power supply like you would use for the old cell phones. Here is my setup:
