Another icubation question (Brinsea).

I have a Brinsea Mini Advanced and I am keeping one side of the reservoir full as per the instructions. I do not have a humidity guage or anything.

I am noticing a little condensation between the lid and the turning disk (where they come together).

Is this normal? Does it mean that humidity is too high?

Hi yes I would say your humidity is too high if your seeing condensation. I don't have the mini but have read from several other people who have them that you really don't need too much water in your pots. I would candle your eggs and see if the air cell is growing if it's not your humidity is too high. If the eggs don't lose enough moisture during incubation this can cause problems. I would strongly recommend a hygrometer with my first incubator I got a lizard/reptile one from pet shop it was very cheap but did the job. You really don't need as much water as you think the brinseas are very good at holding the humidity I have octagon advance and love it. Would remove water as soon as you possibly can. Wishing you the very best of luck :frow
