I have a metal still air bator that was given to me yesterday. By last night I had the temp staying between 99 and 100 and the humidity was 50%. So I put my first 5 eggs in. Overnight the humidity dropped to 37%. I changed the dish back to the metal one that came with the bator and it raised to 41%. It is staying at that. The temp stays the same. How can I get the humidity up to 50%? I would attatch pictures but can't seem to figure out how.

Your temp and humidity always drop in the incubator when you first set the eggs, give it hours or a day before adding more water.

I use 40 to 50% the first 18 days, 60 to 70% range the last 3 days of incubation.
