    I would be more worried about drowning them. Sounds like you can nearly swim through the air there right now.

    My previous experience was incubating in the dry air of SoCal. I was worried I could pull this off on such humid conditions but with all the chirping, they did not drown on pipping internally.

    The air is definitely wet. In july its 90% humid. Sweaty armpits and other skin folds is the norm.

    My phone internet is driving me bonkers. It keeps dropping the already super slow connection.
