    It is hard to resist opening and I tend not to but if I think it's too full in the incubator I will quickly remove the dry ones to the brooder. I too have a Brinsea and it's very good at getting the humidity back up quickly.

    Thats good to know. I cant see how I could hatch up to 20 hen eggs in the octagon without opening it. Barley enough room for the 9 that have hatched.

    I love my Brinsea though. Ill never use anything else thats for sure!
