    That is not a new problem. The Octagon 40 I have is terrible for getting fuzzy in it. I could not imaging hatching ducklings in it. I use the brinsea for incubating and I have two Genesis incubators for hatching.

    It is sad that incubators are as expensive as they are

    What The Heck Is A Vaulted Skull?
    A vaulted skull is a hole or unclosed portion of bone in the top portion of a silkie or Polish chickens head.
    Like the fontanels of a human baby, the skull of crested fowls has openings. These are supposed to fuse in the normal way and usually do. However, this does not always occur and the result is exposure of the cerebellum (brain). Subsequently, a bird’s brain space remains venerable to the environment. Certain bloodlines seem more predisposed to cerebral hernia, whereas other are seldom affected. Unsurprisingly, it is rare in adult birds, as their skulls have had the time to grow and fuse over.
