    I have a springfield precise temp that my husband bought when my dog was pregnant so I could keep track of pups temp. It has a clock, alarm, temp with or without probe, and humidity. I got eggs last minute and set up a home bator. I am waiting for my last egg to hatch (they were different ages). Here is the problem, no matter what I do the humidity won't go above 50. I have a pan at least 3/4 the surface area with a sponge in it, proper ventilation (not too much). I think it might be broke. Is there something else that I can put in there to tell me humidity?
    Thanks,
    Krista
