    I see the slots where the power chord comes out of the bator, when I put the chord into the slots the bator doesn't shut all the way. Can I have some help with this please?

    Use a pencil and push down on the groove a little to make it bigger.

    Would I do this on the top or bottom section?​

    Quote:Yes this works just lay the pen or pencil in the slot and push down will make a dent in the bator and the cord will lay in the new deeper slot.

    Thank you, I made the slot, but its still a little space. I might put scotch tape on it, but how would I put more water in?

    Quote:I put 2 drinking straws together and put them in one of the vent holes and add water with a medicine dropper. I know some people use air tubbing (like you use for fish tanks). Also it wont hurt to remove lid to add water for the first 18 days, after all the hen does get off the eggs to eat, drink and poo. Just make sure you don't open it after day 18.
