I have some questions for those who regularly use this incubation technique.
I have seen a few descriptions with pics but I need a few details.
Are the egg cups left lidless within the water chamber?
Doesn't water condense eventually on the top and drip on the eggs? Most folks say it happens only when the eggs start to sweat and near hatching. I don't see why the condensation wouldn't begin to become a problem earlier. It would eventually leave a puddle in the bottom of the egg cup, killing the lower eggs. I was thinking that covering the egg cups but leaving puched holes on the sides may allow for adequate exchange of humidity and air.
Also, how much space is left between the top of the egg cups and the lid of the water chamber?
I use a dry type homemade incubator if that makes any difference. If anyone can help with thse details, I would be most appreciative.
