    Not much to look at - I just have a little Covatutto 7. The last egg is zipping right now. I have been impressed with this bator - fully manual, but I think I prefer being more hands-on with the eggs!
    Humidity: mostly staying around 65%.
    Temp: 101F.
    Two air vents plugged.

    Sorry if this sounds like a daft question... but can i ask why you plugged the air holes? We've got the same incubator and its our first hatch, so was wondering if this was something that had helped you in anyway?

    I plugged them at the very end to get the humidity up... then quickly realized that I could only plug one, as plugging both would end any attempts at ventilating the air. So, I plugged one, and it raised the humidity the few points I needed it to go up.
