    We set 6 eggs last night at 6:30. Temps and humidity were great. This morning the humidity was down to 10% so I added a bit of water. After work the temp was still fine (100) but the humidity is up to 60.

    This is my first attempt at incubating. Do I need to do something to quickly reduce the humidity?

    I'm using an LG still air that was loaned to me.

    Thanks!

    If you have the red plugs in removed them and that helps lower the humidity (at least it works for me). I too have little giant incubators I use to incubate and hatch in (still air).
