    what type do you have? Yes you do need the humidity up to 55 to 65% in the hatcher and the temp. up to about 100 would be great also

    I was having problems with my humidity as well on the cabinet incubator that I built. I found that the door was the problem. I installed some weatherstripping where the door closed against it and TA-DAA My humidity rose nearly 15 % in the next 2 hours. I had to take out some water to keep it where it was supposed to be! I'm not by any means an expert in this region, just what I found in my circumstance. Good Luck!
