    I finally got my bator today, set it up according to instructions, filled tray in the appropriate spot with water, am letting it get to temp. It came with a hygrometer and the instructions are lacking, in fact it really says nothing about how or where to place it. Or since I have a head cold, the cold medicine is making me loopy and I am missing that part.
    Any help is appreciated. I have the HOva Bator circulated air model with auto turner.

    Hows the bator running? Did you get it figured out? If it came with a hygrometer then have it read between 45-50% humiditiy for days 1-18. Good Luck
