humidity in incubator help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

first time trying this...(sorry NOT TJ eggs but will try next hatch!) but you guys seem like EXPERTS! so question...started out with 30%-40% humidity for about 10 days....then 45ish. 

last night it was super low, 29% so added water, went to bed and when i got up it was 52%. today is day 15. i was planning to let it get down again to 45% max....then crank it up sunday pm to 65%...does that sound ok? esp the higher humidity today??? SO much easier with broody doing the calculations!! really appreciate your feedback...thanks.

Hey!
That sounds great!
Humidity IS important, but a day of too low and a bit of too high isn't going to effect hatching, in my experience. The most important thing is to have 65-70% or even a little higher during the last three days. Do that and you'll be fine:D

Good luck!
