Help with Little Giant humidty!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am on Day 20, have been on lockdown since Saturday. I am having a very difficult time getting the humidity above 50. I have tried all of the tricks mentioned with no success. Is there anything else I can do without opening?

Have you tried pour water in corners? Just lifting lid slightly to let water in?

Is this the Little Giant 9300 or 10300? And if so, are you going by the gages on the bator or do you have your own thermometer/hygrometer inside?  These models are known to be off in both temps and humidity. Many of them will stay(read)  between 40-50% whether they have water or not in them. If you don't have your own gages, it may just be the built in hygrometer is wrong. If you have any condensation in the bator, you know you have too much humidity and can cut back.
