I made a homemade bator, and I couldn't get a humidity gauge until around day 16-17. My egg has formed properly since then, temp. has been in the high 90s to 101 degrees F range. But when I finally got to measure humidity, it was up to 80 and a little higher!!

I took the bowl of water out and wiped the precipitation from the walls of the bator to lower it, and I opened the bator to let humidity go down. It didn't work, so I kept it open, making sure temp. stayed at 90+. It seemed to work pretty well, but it's still waaay too high!

Please please tell me what I can do to lower it! This is my first time hatching and today is day 18 for my single egg. I really want it to hatch!

80 is ok.

It's a little on the high side, but shouldn't cause too many problems.

Remember, the key to humidity is surface area of water. If the humidity is too high, use a smaller bowl.
