Hello! I have 6 eggs in the incubator and 5 have internally hatched. I put them in lockdown and my humidity gage is reading 75% and going up . Is this too high? How do I take humidity out? I will be leaving shortly to go somewhere for the rest of the day.. and would like to make sure these babies are going to be okay. I’ve made so many threads on them today. They are wiggling and peeping but haven’t pipped externally yet. I have made a safety hole bc it’s been over 24 hrs for some of them. These are Kkaki / pekin ducklings and on day 25

I wouldn’t have made a safety hole... but I suppose it’s too late now. Your humidity is a bit high. I’m not sure you can lower it unless you can take water out?

I did take some water out yesterday and now the humidity is at a steady 70% one externally pipped and there’s aren’t too far behind!
