my incubator is a small yellow chep dome one i was wondering about putting water in them on the 18th day and on to bring up the humidity. i hear everyone saying not to open the incubator from the 18th day on so i really dont know what to do. since the incubator is so small as soon as i add water the humidity and temperature go back up pretty quickly. so would that make it not a problem if i open it to add some water in there? thanxs

Sorry, I wish I had an answer for you. Mine is a Hova and I rigged up tubing so that I could add more if needed after 18 days. Are there any vents or hole or anything? You might be able to use a straw or pipet or something if there are small openings. I'm not familiar with your bator, sorry.

Usually most people candle the eggs one last time on day 18 when they stop turning so thats when you get to add more water for your humidity....

Open it and add the water. you just want the humidity up for the hatch.
