    Hello everyone, there are lots of thread about opening and closing the incubator during lockdown. Some say it's OK, some say it's not. If you are worried, I have a solution. In most incubators there are vent holes. I added sponges below these vent holes and make sure no eggs are blocking under the vent holes. I have a straw water-tightly taped to a funnel and when humidity drops below 67ish during lockdown I stick the straw in the vent hole and soak the sponges with very warm water. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    I made a funnel on a straw using duck tape I put water in the pan slots under the wire using the straw. Excess through the vent holes.
