    I am going on day 19 and I have both red plugs pulled for fresh air. I am using a LG still air. On day 1-18, I have kept humidity around 37-45, and I am now upping that to 58-60 for the 3 remaining days. I just need to know about the plugs. Should I replace one to keep the humidity from escaping too rapidly? Thanks for any advice.

    Love wins,
    Cheryl

    If you canget the humidity up and keep the temp stable I say have them both out the chicks need to breath ,
    If you have a hard time with humidity I guess you can put one in .
    I hatch in my home made bator and incubate in my LG so I just always keep one out so far.
