    I calibrated my Timex hydrometer and it said 73 meaning it was 2 % low. so I put it in the bator and it went to 53 meaning it was really 55% and my bator read 35%. Could it really be that far off??? I am so upset because I though I was doing a dry hatch and now I feel like it has always been over the amount I wanted it. I really thought it would be more accurate...I wonder if I should complain to them or at least let them know that it is that far off. It seems that my air sacks are a little small for day 14. I am really worried about this bunch of eggs now and I have some shipped eggs in there too........sigh
