The few small holes in the incubator will provide sufficient oxygen for the eggs, and once you remove the plugs when the chicks hatch there will be plenty of oxygen for them...

I did look at the picture, and that is why I suggest another to confirm... The one stapled to the paper that came with the incubator is not that great based om my experience, mine was almost 2° of when calibrated to a known good mercury veterinary thermometer... While I found the digital one pictured to be pretty accurate, and I have no experience with the other aquarium on you have pictured...
