    I do use a sponge to increase the humidity for the last 3 days, but you really need to have a top of some sort to keep your humidity levels throughout incubation.....and also to keep your temps steady.

    I'm thinking of doing something like this just for the lockdown and hatching....and just use my Hova-Bator for the incubation and turning.

    I'm also considering purchasing the new Genesis Hova-Bator for incubation and turning, and using the older bator for lockdown and hatching.
