    Hello,

    I went into lockdown yesterday and my humidity is only at 49%. I know I am not supposed to touch anything while in lockdown but can I take the cover off and add some wet sponges or something? I am incubation in a Brinsea 20 advance. I wish I had bought the humidity pump[​IMG]. Should I leave it or get in there to add water? Thanks everyone. Wow, this is driving me crazy!!!

    PS....this is my first hatch!!!!

    Thanks....just added a little water...and a wet sponge. Hope that works. Didn't know hatching chicken eggs was so stressful:)
