    I'm now on day 21 (hatch day), my egg incubator is at humidity 54%

    • Day 18 the humidity was 72%
    • Day 19 it was 58%
    • Day 20 it was 85%
    • Today Day 21 it now at 54% humidity.

    I readed that the humidity need to be around 70% at the start of lock down (day 18) and to just leave the humidity if it drops in humidity not to at more water.

    As it is hatching day will 54% be okay ?

    If the membrane appears to dry after a pip, then you should add more water

    It now at 62% humidity, so I think everything should be fine now. It's just a waiting game for them to hatch now.
