    I'm using the Brinsea Mini Advanced incubator. I am on day 19. Put the eggs in lockdown last night and filled both water reservoirs. I'm using a hygrometer from a pet store and this morning it's reading 93%! I lifted the dome for a couple of minutes during the cooling cycle to release some of the humidity and it brought it down some but it keeps going back up to the 90% range. For those who have used this incubator, should I only feel one side of the reservoir? It is very dry in New Hampshire right now so I'm surprised I'm having this issue. I would like to get this figured out before any of the egg start to I would like to get this figured out before any of the egg start pip.
    Thank you in advance for any advance! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
