May sound like a basic question but how do you keep either substance damp/wet without spraying the eggs directly ? as i have read this is bad, is it a case of pouring in bottom of the tub ? I'm asking in advance as ANToinette :) has laid 2 batches of 23 eggs so far but after considering all things and being advised by the RSPCA i froze them very early on, i'm now expecting the 3rd batch in the next week ish and my brother who has owned beardies before wants to try and incubate a few of the eggs from the last expected clutch.

Any advice on this is appreciated as always, ;)

Am posting a short video very shortly of ANToinette laying her second clutch ;)

Ive read that a pipet is a good way to add water to the vermiculite. You can slowly drip it around the egg safely without it touching the egg itself

It depends on your incubator, but basically if the vermiculite is already slightly damp then a lid with some air holes on the egg container should be sufficient to maintain the moisture content. If things do start to dry out then a small funnel, teaspoon, pipette or other device will do.
