    hi, im making a styrofoam incubator at home and im finishing it but i don't know if it should be completely closed with no air holes? Any advice will be helpful!

    It needs air holes. Those eggs need to breathe. You might try doing a google search for Rush Lane Poultry. He has a lot of "how to" videos.

    Very much agree air holes are essential.
