    I am on day 19 and I put my eggs in the hatcher last night. I woke up this morning to humidity near 80%, it got up to 83% during the night. The plug is out of my Genesis 1588, I lifted the lid at the back and soaked up water out of 2 troughs, but it is still running 75%. What do I do? I don have another 1588 that I use as an incubator, would it be wise to start that one up again and get it to a better humidity lever and move the eggs, or just leave them at the current humidity, or do something else?

    75% is good.

    Try to get it around 65%, 75% is a little high - After taking all the water out it will take time for the hum to come back down. Give it a few hours and see what happens.
