    I'd take both out.... They need oxygen, especially during lockdown & hatch.

    You shouldn't be using vent plugs to control humidity.... If humidity gets below 65%, add a damp rag or a dish of water with papertowels in it to prevent drowning. Ventilation is very important..... Most experienced hatchers will tell you to throw them (the vent plugs) away.

    Good luck!

    lol I never sleep if they hatch at night. I lay in bed and every 5 minutes I check on them. If I fall asleep at like 10 it will be 10:10 when I wake up and I'm thinking "oh no! I slept for 10 MINUTES that's way to long,what if they already hatched!! DANGIT why did I fall asleep :lol: "
