Does humidity rise when you first put eggs in?

    I can't remember from last year! I had the temps and humidity perfect for about 2-3 days before putting my eggs in. I put them in about an hour ago and the temp naturally went down (the eggs were a little on the cool side) but my humidity went way up! How much time to give it until I start messing with it?

    It makes sense that the humidity would rise, because the moisture comes out to make the air cells larger. I wouldn't worry about it at this point. What's the humidity in the house right now? Is it humid outside?
