    I was having trouble with humidity in the beginning, it seems my incubator knows no % between 40 and 70. LOL So mine has been 30s for awhile. Hopefully I can get to to where I need it to be, and it stays! LOL I know I could get it to 75% no problems, but not if thats too high... [​IMG]

    That's not too bad! Do you have a sponge in there? or a sock? I add water to mine through the vent hole with a straw and syringe. Works pretty well![​IMG]
