End of day 18. Out of turner, in lockdown. HovaBator-comes set at 99.5F...does it need increased for hatch or no. Managing humidity around 54%-57% (dang! Humidity is fun to control huh?) :rolleyes:

So...up the temp? Humidity? Or leave be?

some recommend dropping it by 1 degree as you should be raising humidity, while others just raise the humidity to about 65-70 %

Some as raise humidity to above suggestion, I had problems with raising it that high. It was suggested to me to run humidity 35 to 50 then raise to 55-50 at lockdown


Leave temp alone
a lot depends on elevations and climate, so yeah It makes fun.

No mountains or big valleys here lol. Just Michigan thumb. So natural humidity is crazy variant right now but we keep the house closec when it's humid to limit it. (I really HATE sticky weather)!! I noticed without the a/c running that the humidity is easier to control in the bator tho
