    I was planning on following Bill Worrell's plan and if you have read it before you know that he bases his more on the outside humidity. The room should be between 50 - 75%, preferrably 50%. Then on the 7th day when you candle you can check the humidity and if it is low like 25% then it needs some water.

    My question is what should the INCUBATORS humidity be when you first start out, not the rooms. I want to make sure that the incubator is getting to where it should be. I figured if 25% was to low on day 7 then maybe the incubator should be near 30%-35% but I don't know. SO I was wondering if anyone has followed this before or has an idea of what it should be???
