    Hey Guys,

    I have an LG styrobator,and the turner that goes with it. How do I add water to the wells.not disturb the eggs, or opening the 'bator for too long?

    A piece of tubing through the vent hole and then put water in the tubing with a syringe . I learned that on this forum and am doing it right now! [​IMG] I had a piece of aquarium air tubing and just threaded it through the vent hole.

    How do you know when you've added enough, So it doesn't overflow?

    I cut extra trays out of plastic cups and put them in the corners under the grate. I add water to them through the vent holes with a straw. I found that even with sponges and a sock I was unable to get the humidity where I wanted it so the added trays helped a lot.
