    How do you stop it from fogging up? Especially after day 18 when you want to increase the humidity? Currently I've been putting a tea towel on the pane of plexiglass and taking it off when I want to look at the eggs but I find that if I take it off for too long (which happens often at pip time) the window starts to fog up and I lose visibility. Would a double pane work (ie like a double pane window)? I've even considered changing the position of the window - currently I have it on top, maybe on the side instead?

    Thanks for that - I might try to find some of it.
