    Would it be considered dry incubation if I keep the humidity between 20% and 35%? Then increase on day 18 to 65 or 70%.

    Yes, keeping the humidity between 25% and 35% roughly is ideal.

    I have no problem keeping it at 20% to 35%. I have a straw that I made a funnel end on with duct tape and a bulb like those they give you when babies are born to clean mucus from there nose with that I use to squirt water down the straw through a vent hole into the pan below. I works like a charm. That way I do not need to open the incubator to put water in it.
