    You can let the humidity stay at 30% fir the first 18 days. Then between 55 and 60% for the last three. That should do it. Don't worry if the humidity goes to 25 unless it stays there for 24 hours. Just bring it up a little then.

    I use it and have loved it, with me I have had good success with it. I think of it in a natural sense what does a hen do and how does she control temp & humidity. you see.
