    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    Do not obstruct the holes in the bottom of your incubator. They are there to provide fresh air flow. If you need to increase humidity, use sponges.

    [​IMG] & [​IMG] from Alabama. Glad you joined us. Definitely try using a sponge to get the humidity up - almost always works. And good luck with your hatch [​IMG]
