  2. no your good if it was a wet bulb any adjustment will need to be made in the bag before opening it . that way you know you have it right once you open the bag the test is lost .now read the instructions carefully and do what it says for adjustment . this little hygro is so amazing the only draw back is placement for easy view .

    Ventilation question---is it advisable to just take out both plugs and leave them out for the whole hatch to ensure adequate oxygen?

    VENTILATION (OXYGEN)
    Hatching at High Altitudes post #37908
    O2 deprivation to day 10 of incubation followed by regular oxygen concentrations leads to stronger chicks post #33815
    PUT THE RED VENT PLUGS IN FOR THE FIRST 10 DAYS ONLY and then REMOVE ALL VENT PLUGS for the rest of the hatch!
    NEVER USE VENT holes as a means to Control HUMIDITY especially during HATCH DAYS!

    I think I'm crazy. I am 41 minutes into the test run and I have already filled up a whole page of paper with notes.
