    I just got my Genesis 1588 bator yesterday and set it up yesterday evening to make sure the humidity and temperature levels are all good before I put my eggs in. The humidity level has been holding steady at 55% since 4:00 this morning. Is that to high? The temperature has been holding steady at 100 degrees since last night. Are these readings okay? I WANT TO PUT MY EGGS IN!!! Sorry! I didn't mean to shout, I just wanted to get started! [​IMG]

    I PMd you. It's okay, Stacey. It will go down a little over the next couple of days naturally, so you can either leave it alone, or just remove the red vent plug on top for a little while. And the temps are perfectly okay from 99.5-100.
