  1. [​IMG] Tomorrow is my lockdown date (day 18). My question is, do I increase the humidity? It is around 45 to 48. I've read on here and in books that it should be risen between 60 - 70. My homemade bator has a fan.

    Yes, add humidity. YOu dont' want those babies sticking to the inside of the shell.

    Add a container or 3 of water with a few sponges in them. Try to get the humidity up above 70 if you can.
