    I have not had my incubator out in a year and have forgotten pretty much everything, lol. I would like to attempt a dry hatch, but I don't remember what I should do or when. Do I just leave the bator alone, no water at all until lock down? Then up to what humidity? 50%?
    I live in the desert and I am pretty sure my incubation failures are due to humidity issues.

    What kind of incubator do you have? What are the surrounding temperatures and humidity levels in the place you intend to incubate? Some people incubate in their closets Some people say the number isn't what matters, but how much mass is lost or how big the air cell grows.

    Have you talked with anyone in your state thread to find out what they are doing?
