High humidity in my incubator

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've just started incubating chicken eggs and for the first 3 days the humidity has been high around 70% are my eggs still ok? No water has been added to the incubator

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Do you live in a very humid climate?  Or is the location of your incubator in a very humid room ( bathroom, basement  ????) I have never incubated eggs  but folks on the incubation threads should be able to get you through this -  maybe your incubator has controls to open or close which would cut some of the humidity.

My humidity isn't near that high, although I live in Indiana.

Hi and welcome  to BYC. I hope that posting as advised will help you get the answers you are looking for. Like DD, I have no experience using incubators either.

 

All the best

:welcome

 

In addition to the forum on incubating/hatching, there are a lot of articles on the subject in the Learning Center...those might be of help to you.

 

Good luck!
