There is a lower basin within the incubator to hold the water to control the humidity and the temperature control is fully automatic and contolled by a thermostat. The incubator also has a thermometer attached to read temperature inside the incubator. The light stays on while heating up to 100 deg F. After that the light bulb will flash. Approximate capacity for the incubator is 12 hen eggs, 6 duck eggs, 4 – 6 turkey or goose, 20+ quail or partridge eggs & 15+ guinea fowl or pheasant eggs.
