Hi all,

I have a 1588 with the egg turner and eggs (added at 12 this morning). What I don't have is a good way to add water. I do better with pictures. Sooo what do you do when adding water? Is there a way to add water and not open the top? It took over 8 hours to recover its heat when I added the eggs. This is my first time hatching. It's kinda nerve wracking. Please show what your set-up is.

Thank you for your help.

Sorry I don't have a picture, but here is what I did. I stuck a straw down through the vent hole and then used a medicine dropper to squirt water down the straw. I also found that if you just quickly raise the top on one side just enough to pour a little water in, that the temp only goes down to 98˚.
