    Don't you put the water under the wire floor? Well by using the shelf liner you are covering the wire floor, and blocking humidity, correct? How does that work?

    I use shelf liner in my homemade incubator and have not had any problems at all with humidity.

    I think the kind of shelf liner some people might be using is the kind that goes in the crisper at the bottom of the fridge, it feels a bit like rubber and has holes in it. The other kind probably wouldn't be recommended as it's surface would become very slick if it got wet at all. [​IMG]

    I use the same rubber kind in my incubator. I realize it's not the same type of incubator but I wouldn't think it would block humidity. That's just the moisture in the air. [​IMG]
