Do you think 55% is too high for first 18 days

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    I have not added ANY water since day one. On day 4 (I think) WW broke. The pan is empty.

    We are currently on day 15.

    Is there anything I can get to have it go down? Or should I worry about it?

    nope - not too high. Just make sure to get it up around 75% on day 18/19 for hatching...

    Good luck with your hatch!

    Don't worry about it. I aimed for mine to be 50-60% and I've seen recommendations as high as 65%.

    Ok, Thanks all!

    I can't believe I have 6 that are growing, Sat is day 18, and that we will be out of town until Sun.

    My parents will be watching them for me. With lots of instructions!
