    I would concentrate on one variable at a time, for the moment ignore the humidity issue.

    As far as temperature, what are you using in the way of a thermostat?

    we have a just been and got the thermostat is a ministat 100 ,and we can only get it to about 95.5 before it swiches off
    ,then it comes back on at 94.6
    with a max of 95.5 will eggs hatch ok or will we have major problems
    our humidity is around 50% constant
    i have no option of gettin a bigger thermostat with these eggs before next friday
