    I am on day 19 and my humidity has gone up to 80....is this too high? Have I hurt my eggs? Can humidity be too high?

    Thank you

    Humidity can be to high but I still think your fine. Someone who has had that happen will hopefully chime in.

    I think that's still in a reasonable range. If you see the bator's window fogging, open a vent and that will help.

    Try opening the vents a little and get it down to 70 if you can.

    The chicks need a lot of oxygen right now, and too tightly sealed an incubator might suffocate them.
