Can anyone tell me about humidity controlling in a Brinsea 10, instruction of use don't seem to give enough humidity. Bought a digital hygrometer/thermometer but only shows 16% at 38 degrees when using the recommended method and amount of water.

Is it okay to use a hygromter in this type of bator?

Someone please help... my little duckling eggs are waiting!!

If it's similar to the Octagon 20, then there is a vent on top you open or close according to the required humidity level

I use an Octagon 40 but all of the trays should work the same way. I think there are a few things you need to do. The first thing I would do is get another hygrometer and double check the one you have. I would also use either a sponge, piece of towel, paper towel, or something else to use as a wick that would give more surface area for water to evaporate. I've never had any humidity problems in mine.
Good luck.
