LG Vents Revisited

The only thing more frustrating than my LG right now are the directions that came with it.

On Sunday, it will be time to raise humidity, shut the bator, and leave the eggs alone. The best way to keep humidity up would be to plug both vents, but I'm worried about air supply. However, I only have 12 eggs in the bator. If I recall, it fits about 48 eggs so I'm only at one fourth capacity. Can I plug it, or not? Also, if I do plug it, I'll have to start the process a few hours early, since both adding a plug and increasing humidity with wreak a certain degree of havoc on the already capricious temperature balance.

Any insights would be appreciated!

Thanks,


Laura

edwards, ms
relax ,,, take your time and don't make too many changes at once , to get the hum right you'll have to find the right combination for your home , mine is one plug no sponge for the lg and no plug and a 2x2in sponge for the genesis. . and the hum will jump after a chick hatches

p.s bator has holes in the bottom too for air it will be fine

Excellent! I wasn't at all sure that the holes on the bottom would be enough. My concern with hitting the sweet spot with humidity is that the windows of the incubator fog up when I get the level near high enough! So, I'm afraid I won't be able to read the humidity without opening the incubator.

I didn't realize humidity went up with hatchings. Good to know! Any effect on temperature?
