Re: the vent plug issue

Je m'excuse. The title should be the incubator vent plug , not to be confused with a plugged vent, although the incubator vent is plugged but only with masking tape, at this point.

Re: A pretador in the henhouse

Time to put up some 1/2" metal fabric around and on top of the enclosure?

Re: Names the kittens

Good idea, Linda - kind of a combination of the Greek alphabet (Alpha, Beta, gamma delta...) and the NATO phonetic alphabet: (Alpha Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Juliette, Kilo, Lima, Mike, November, Oscar, Papa, Quebec, Romeo, Sierra, Tango, Uniform, Victor, Whiskey, X-...
