    My humidity was at 60 % and when I went to lock the bator down I noticed a pip...my question is...right now I have some wet rags in there and the RH has gone up to 75 % ...should I go higher??
    I failed miserably with my last batch and I so want this one to go better...I appreciate any help you can give! [​IMG]

    they don't need higher humidity. if humidity is too high then the chicks get sticky.

    I know it needs to be a bit higher for ducklings...was wondering if 75 % is enough...I now have 3 pipped [​IMG]
