I don't have a Sportsman (yet) and this is my first hatch, ever, but is there anything in the instructions about the humidity controls? I think I would read those thoroughly, first. Then if you have no answer, maybe you could call the company to see if it is meant to take those things into consideration. My humidity has been between 20% and 30% through the whole hatch so far and my air cells look good. There are some smaller and some larger, but the majority are about the same size and consistant with where the chart says they should be at this point. I hope that helps you at least a little.
I have a humidity question for anyone using a GQF Cabinet Sportsman Please I have been dry incubating down here in the little fridge and styro bators. I don't increase or add humidity until the eggs actually start to pip. Now I have a GQF and I am not sure what to do. I know to weigh the eggs etc to determine if they are losing enough but not too much moisture but since it seems soooo very controlled do I just go with the humidity pan and 47% humidity? If I put water in the pan and just let it run it stays at about 47%. Should I still take the natural air humidity into consideration but wouldn't the read out show that as well? It has an outside temp reading as well as an inside temp reading so the humidity should be taken into consideratrion as well? I don't want to kill any chicks but I did put two batches of eggs in it all ready just one day ago. Thanks for any input on this
