    If humidity goes above 75% during lockdown can chicks drown in the egg if the have large air cells?

    It should be o-kay. Maybe consider opening one of the vents, if applicable.

    If it's like that for a long time... maybe. I agree with nurse_turtle, just open a vent to get it down.

    We had some rain come through unexpectedly and the exhaust fan leaked so my humidity took a huge leap so I was just wondering. All four vents are open now. Thank you
