Well, I recently found out that it only works with eggs from your back yard, but basically you weigh them when they are laid and then weigh on days 7,14,18. The eggs should loose exactly 13% by hatch. So if you monitor weight you can adjust your humidity to match proper weight loss. It's the most accurate method for humidity.

My guess is that the humidity in your house dripped a lot--which will make the humidity go down in the incubator if you do not have water in it. If humidity regularly goes below 20% at your place, you will have to add water to your incubator.
Bad stuff happens if humidity is below 25% for a long time during incubation.
Yes, this is exactly what I think happened.

No problem sharing the eBay seller. http://www.ebay.com/usr/1234muki?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
For an eBay seller she was exceptional I thought.
Thanks! I forgot you said they were sizzled, duh! But really nice to hear positive feedback on eBay. I hope to sell on eBay in the spring myself, so I've been doing my homework. (And shopping)!!
