    How do you keep the humidty stablized during lockdown? if you cant open the bator then how can you add water if the humidty goes down??? should i add like a tube or something? im on day 14 so i only have 4 more days to come up witha solution and then i cant open it so how do i do this?

    I use bendy straws in my LG they fit through the holes and you can position them to go where you want with the water.

    I hope that helps.

    But in lock down I have sponges on the bottom under the wire and a bowl filled with washcloths and water. I added in 2 more sponges for this hatch and have 80% easy. BTW I'm doing ducks.

    ill use bendy straws and add water when i want to because i dont like sponges they grow to much bacteria in them.
