    Hey y'all!

    I got my first incubator and it's a Brinsea Mini 2 Advance. I'm on my last week of incubation, my six eggs are growing and thriving!!

    I've got a hygrometer/thermometer inside the incubator and my humidity has been around 35-40%. It's been reading about 2F cooler than what the incubator is set for, but I don't think that's a big enough difference for it to really be harmful/super inaccurate.

    My biggest question is, is that how do you get the humidity up? Hatch days should be +60% humidity right? Do you just add water to the dish in the middle? Should I do a piece of wet sponge? Any advice would be great and be very appreciated!! I've always let nature do its thing vs me hatching them.
