    It's time to elevate the humidity and I know that during the night my humidity drops. So last night I a soaked a cotton cord with water and pushed it thorough some holes in my styrofoam bator . I placed the ends of the cord into a dish of water and hoped that it would act as a wick. It did! I did not have much change in humidity through the night!
    Thought it might help ease IBW symptoms!!
