    This is my first time hatching and they are due on the 28th. I candled and got rid of 3 that weren't fertile and the rest seem to be doing nicely. Since this is pre-set what do I need to do at lockdown to change the humidity? The book that came with it tells how to change the temp but not the humidity?

    For where I'm at, I fill both of the large center wells. Depending on how dry / wet it is where you are, you may need to fill one of the small outer wells too.

    Oh, and was going to add that I do put a digital thermometer / hygrometer in during lockdown so I can monitor humidity. But during incubation, I don't bother. [​IMG]
