    I'm unfortunately only down to one egg. I know not to open the incy for the last 3 days. But after the chicks hatched, should I drop the humidity so it dries off quicker?

    I recently had what I would consider a very good first hatch. I never lowered the humidity at all. I just let it go. After they start hatching, you will notice the humidity rise, which kind of shook me up a bit, but I found out it was normal. My little babies dried up nicely just the same. Good luck with yours.
