    For those of you that have this incubator...
    How many air vent plugs does it have?
    Thanks

    I have the 2012 1588 and it has one on the top window with a red plug. There are also several ventilation holes along the bottom in the styrofoam that do not have plugs. [​IMG]

    Are they open vent holes or do I need to unplug them if need be? Thank you

    They're permanently open in my incubator. The eggs need oxygen and these tiny holes provide a measure of fresh air. I would not recommend plugging them..

    As Dahlisgrams say, they are always open.
