    I had to open my incubator to rescue a baby that had fallen into the water well of the incubator, I had to move all the eggs over to the other incubator, I did this as quickly as possible and the incubator want up in humidity very quickly as I added hot steamie water to it.. what is the likely hood they will till hatch.. no one was peeping so the eggs are still whole.. I couldn't just leave the baby in the well to die.. so If me saving him risked the rest of the hatch i'm okay with that.. but i'm hoping they will all still hatch..

    I open my cabinet during hatches. As long as you don't do it all the time, the one time won't hurt.
