    So, my Nurture Right 360 malfunctioned on day 22 which resulted in the death of a few of my babies.
    I took it back and exchanged it for a Brinsea Mini Advanced II.

    I believe I have it all set up correctly, however, there is no humidity read out.

    Per the video and manual, I filled half the center water holder. Is that good? Is that considered 55%?

    When day 18 comes, do I fill the second half? Is that 70%?

    Not having a read out on the humidity worries me.

    Does anyone have this incubator?

    Yes I have same one. I bought a small round quarter size humistat at the pet store and stuck it to the inside of the dome. Works fine. If anything the humidity gets a little high at the end if you follow their directions. Especially after the first chick hatches. For the first 15 days or so you will have add water every 3 or 4 days.

    So just keep the water level high enough for 1/2 (or one side) of the center hub to be full?
