I have a homemade with fan. For lockdown it says to turn fan off but then i can't keep the humidity above 50%. Should i leave the fan running seeing that i can get 65% to 70% humidity?

You can leave the fan on. There's no reason to turn it off unless there's a reason you specifically want to hatch still air. If you're having issues with it off just leave it on smile.png

The only reason some people suggest to cut the fan off is to help raise humidity. So if you have better success with the humidity leaving the fan on, go for it. Hope you have a great hatch!
