    I just had my first hatch in this incubator. EVERY baby go shrink wrapped, I only saved about half by opening and moistening when I did an eggtopsy on a couple that failed. I tried everything, cloth along the bottom tucked into the wells, steaming water, damp sponges, closing the vent, damp paper towels long the eggs. the humidity simply would not stay up. Any tips or ideas?
