I was told to keep the humidity at 50% for the first 18 days but my seems to range from 45% to 55%. If it stays in that range, is it still fine?

You need to get it to 65-75 % or the chicks may have a very hard time hatching.

Try adding a bowl with warm water or bowls with towels soaked in warm water.

Hope this helps

I think 45%-55% is fine. Humidity is more crucial at hatch time. What I do is more of a dry incubation at 40% and then on day 18 up the humidity to 60-65%.
