    Today is day 22....
    I have two pips out of 33 eggs............
    Have lg, still air............ran 100.5 for first 18 days and 35 to 45 humidity.
    Calibrated the hydrometer and put in a second one.
    Lockdown, same temp......humidity mostly 65.....went down a little for a short time. Went up kast night to
    75 to 78................was back to 65 this morning.
    Question....should there be moisture showing on the inside of the windows..there is not but I had read this somewhere.
    Concerned my humidity is not high enough........

    Thank You

    The fog on the window has more to do with the relative humidity and the difference in side your incubator you can get a digital hydrometer thermometer at wal mart for 6 bucks over by the indoor outdoor thermometers then you will always know what it is for sure
