    I put a blanket over the incubator to help raise the temp, as it is now very sensitive to changes in external temperature. Is it okay for the blanket to be over the small vent holes, or do all vents have to be unblocked? Thanks.

    Sorry for all the questions.

    Never be sorry for questions... that's how we all learn... :)

    I never block the little holes, I think they need that O2... got any scarves? Then you could wrap it up and leave little spaces for those spots...
