I have some holes in the bottom of my styrafoam Hova incubator .....Its a used one ...dont know if the previous owner put them in or it comes like that....there are no holes in the two troughs that hold water but I keep on having water pour out of the incubator....thank goodness I am testing the incubator first before eggs....I need some advice ...should I plug those holes up??

Those are for air circulation. Did it have a plastic tray when you got the bator? New ones have a plastic tray for holding water and a screen that clips to it to set eggs on. You can get replacements at Murray McMurray hatchery online I think.

Mine is using it has holes in the bottom as well as in the tray one on each corner.They look like their holes from the manufacturer but when I watch videos the same incubator does not have holes
