    I have a Farming Innovations Model 4200 Incubator and the directions say to add warm water to the bottom cover moisture slots?? Where are these slots???

    Doesn't your bator have a plastic liner for the bottom? That is generally where water goes...

    Be sure to keep asking around and try to look up your model on the net. I would think it should have come with a liner to add water. Don't fret though as there are any number of ways to do it....keep searching the forums and threads along with the 101 'classes' and your babes should be all right.
