I will definitely try this! Someone else was just telling me about putting tape over the little hole that has the water drops next to it. I have a roll of that blue painters tape too! Thanks for the tip!

I'm sorry to hear this! Yes, I've had to move eggs in with lockdown eggs. It should be ok, you might want to run a little dryer after you get them out of lockdown if you think the higher humidity slowed down growth on the air cells. But it might not either, so just keep an eye on the growth.

Brinsea's hold their value. Before I bought mine new, I was always looking for used ones. But all the used that I would find would only be slightly cheaper. So if you can find a good deal, go for it!
