    Should I open it quickly to fill it? Or just leave well enough alone? Can I use a funnel to dribble some through the hole on top?

    Chick that hatched last night is in with broody hen. It was desperate for a Momma hen last night and seemed really strong. All is well this morning. Will post more info later, with pics, on Raising Baby Chicks.

    Throw a wet washcloth (HOT Water) in really quick. That will get your humidity up FAST! Promise.

    I use a syringe with a needle and just put the water through the vent holes on top. Works really good and you do not have to open the bator.
