Incubating Container

I just have a question regarding the container that houses the eggs while in the incubator. I know to fill it 2/3 perlite with .8 to 1 ratio. The only thing I have not seen is whether or not to put air holes in the container.

I don't put air holes in them. I just open the container once a week for air circulation. Closer to hatch date, I peek into the incubator every day.

I do have 1 small hole in the deli cups I use for incubating. I also use vermiculite rather than perlite, but it's just a personal preference:-)

I use those chinese food containers, the microwavable ones, so i acn see in them really well.

I was just wondering if you still used the .8 to 1 ratio for moisture?
