    I have a home made incubator. When it gets to the last 3 days can I open the incubator to put water (for humidity) in it? Thanks.

    when you first go into lockdown that's the time to add more water.. but if you have a bator that loses humidity easily you can either bump the humidity up extra high and monitor it so it doesnt drop too low.. or add water as needed (add HOT water .. like the temp for making a cup of hot tea).. it will boost the humidity up faster than room temp water.. but sure.. if it needs water add it!
