My chicks are hatching. Humidity keeps spiking to 80-90%s. I dont know what to do. I have plugs out and even added a few vent holes in the homemade viewing windows.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Okay good. I keep hearing. Don't let the humidity get too high and then it happened. And this is my first hatch so I kinda freaked out.

That's for days 1-18. During lockdown my humidity is around 70. I have a remote display and when I see it says 80 I say yep, another one just hatched. When it says 90 I know 2 are in the process. As the chicks hatch & dry it drops back down to 70.

It will dry out and fall off soon. If it's being a problem, like in danger of being ripped of by another chick, just clip it off, if it bleeds put a dab of flour on it.
