I am shure many people will have lots of advice , I think 44% humidity is fine and if I were you Id wait and see if the temp stays like that or goes up a tad after every thing settles , you want to shoot for 95.5 but after you put the eggs in it can take a bit to get back to perfect temp.
Good luck.

SO sO so sorry not 95.5 I was half asleep im so sorry its 99.5

Quote:You actually want 99.5 temp is a bit low, but it won't hurt them. It will slow down developement slightly though... I guess you figured out the controls for it gapeachy??
