    for christmas one of my gifts was an egg turner for my little giant incubator.....well i was dying to use it so i went out and got 4 mixed eggs to put in it to try it out and it worked nice, but i had a slight problem i couldnt get much water into my wells how do i get enough water in the wells with that egg turner in the incubator?

    I use a piece of tubing connected to a small funnel into which i pour the water. (If I understand your question correctly.)
    You also might consider using 1 or 2 of those small kitchen sponges to absorb the water......depending on the humidity reading you are getting.

    The tubing they sell in the aquarium section of the pet store works well. That's what I use with a bulb syringe.

    I used a staw, I just put it in the hole on the top of incubator ( the one where the red vent plug goes) guided it through turner to the water well and used a syringe to shoot water through

    the straw, i also had a syringe with some tubing attached to wet the sponges under the wire to increase humidity last 3 days the small tubing fits right through the air vents on top of the

    bator.i used IV tubing but im sure you can use tubing made for a fish tank, if you dont have a syringe you can use a turkey bastor also. [​IMG]

    I use kitchen sponges in my LG and they work well.

    I got one for Christmas and just filled the tray on the bottom up like two times. But I used sponges too, that seemed to work the best on the humidity.
