    What should the humidity be?

    If it’s a Brinsea, it should have a vent. I just keep mine open the whole time, mine is the Maxi II Advance.

    Everybody has their own way of doing incubation. I’ve been doing dry incubation for about two years. not trying to convince you to do it this way, just offering it as an option.🙂

    Weights work, too. I’ve also done it this way but I find monitoring air cell sizes easier.😊

    What should the humidity be?

    You can try taking all the water out and seeing what the humidity reading is. It will not hurt anything short term.

    Sorry posted that before I saw your towel test response. Sounds good! Many people incubate at your humidity readings and have no issues whatsoever, like I said you’ll have as many opinions about this as there are people on BYC.😊

    What should the humidity be?

    You can still salt test your hygrometer to check it for accuracy. It is easy to do. I just did it with two I got in the mail yesterday. One was off by 3% and one was off by 4% They were reading high so I just have to -3 or -4 on the readings I get.😊

    Do you know what your hygrometer readings were before you added any water to the incubator? Did you salt test your hygrometer to make sure it is accurate?

    Read up on this and other methods in the incubation threads. You can keep track of the air cells size to monitor your humidity and increase or decrease it based on these findings.

    What should the humidity be?

    You will get as many opinions on this as there are members on BYC! I dry incubate because my ambient humidity is high and I usually have between 35 and 45% for the first 18 to 19 days and then go up to about 65% in lockdown.😊
