    decide on what kind of method of incubation you want to do...... the humidity will change from one setting day 1-18 to something different 18-21. Ideally temp should be 99.5 or as close as you can get....

    Here's a good link to help you....

    About the humidity, you should go get a hygrometer somewhere, you can pick up a fairly cheap one at walmart it is digital and has built it thermometer...

    then you can check the temp/humidity and compare it to the info on the link i just posted for you depending on what kind of method of incubation you choose...

    Hope this wasn't confusing.... LOL.

    GOOD LUCK!
