    Ok I got my incubator today (A day early [​IMG] and I was wondering if someone could show me a picture of how they carved out a hole of their incubator to allow the plug for the turner to be plugged in. I sure don't want to crack this expensive piece of Styrofoam! Also what department in walmart would i find the hygrometer? Can I buy a wiggler there to? Does the 1588 even need one?

    There should be a notch in the back where the turner cord fits and comes out your incubator...at the top section of your bator lid in the back left side...Its not a hole just a notch where the cord sets out of....

    Thermometer/Hygrometers are in the outdoor section where all the other thermometers are...

    I don't use a water wiggler...its a kids toy called a water snake, water wiggler...cheap toy section of wal-mart or a dollar store...
