I'm incubating duck eggs. 17 days to go. I recently transferred them into a new incubator as the old was was garbage. I purchased a new Brinsea Maxi II Avance yesterday. I cannot find an option on how to set the humidity on there anywhere. On the instructions, it shows that on the display it should read the Temperature & humidity. The display does show the Temp. & the day, but not the humidity %. There isn't even an option for it on the menu. Is this how it should be? It says to keep the water filled to a certain mark, which I have. Does it just regulate the humidity levels itself without me knowing what the levels are & I just have to trust it? I have a separate humidity gauge in there and it says 60%. It should be around 40%. I know the cheap little gadgets are not as reliable as Brinsea but that is apparently my only option??!!? Is there a humidity option somewhere on the incubator that I am not seeing?
