    I consider a "dry hatch" 35-40% humidity for days 1-18 and 67% for days 19-21.

    Good luck.

    Yeah, a dry incubation really just means up until lockdown. You should probably raise your humidity now, if you haven't done so already!
    Anything above 65% is good. If nobody's pipped yet, you should be able to get your humidity up in time for them hatching. Good luck!
