    Hi I don't know the answer to your question but I am glad you asked because I have the same incubator. Did you go with a fan or a hygrometer at all?

    I also go into lockdown tommorrow with a Hova Bator still air with egg turner. I put a couple of drinking straws together going from the water tray and out from a vent hole I then add water from a medicine syringe like the one in this link http://www.babygifts.es/en/cp/Baby_Medicine_Syringe
    Hope I made sense got the idea from a picture I saw here on BYC.
