    Last night my babies started hatching! 4 of the 12 have hatchedd and I can see a 5th one on the way! Well, I can see the water in the incubator getting kind of low and I need to refill it.. Is it safe to open it up for a few short seconds to refill? Please let me know! Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks so much!

    [​IMG] the humidity needs to be around 70% real quick you can wet a sponge or paper towel or cloth and slip it in there and also if your bateor has holes you can use a straw to put water in it ......warm water is best
