Our ducks are doing great so far!!! However, we are KNACKERED!
The humidity is unconsistent e.g we put it at about 53% when we go to bed and have to get up and check it about 2 times throughout the night because sometimes it drops all the way to 20%!
With a janoel incubator.. When we put about 3 drops of water into it, the humidity goes sky high and it's getting unbearable!
Can anyone help? How to stabilise the humidity?

Have you ever checked the hygrometer for accuracy?

Well we have bought a seperate thermometer thing for humidity..
I think we started as a dry incubator which is the problem- because when we add a few drops of water in then it goes sky high! We're on day 17 and panicking sad.png

How do the air cells look? As long as the air cells look good, don't panick.
