Okay, I am still fairly new to incubating and have never hatched quail. I have 12 Button quail eggs coming tomorrow. Here is my main concern. I recently installed a fan in my Little Giant incubator. When I hatched a peacock egg I never used a hygrometer, or a fan. But since I want everything to go right with the quail, I bought a thermometer with a small hygrometer at the bottom, and installed the fan. Well, this has me stumped. I filled all the water reservoirs in the bottom of the bator and ran it for a test run to check everything. If the bator is running, the humidity is only like 45% or less, but if the bator is not running it jumps up to 80%! We are making a trip to Walmart tonight and I am wondering if I should pick up a better thermometer/ hygrometer, maybe digital? Please, can someone help me with this issue? My eggs are coming tomorrow, and I would like to have everything running smoothly on a test run later tonight. Also, how often do you all check and refill the water reservoirs? I will be concerned about opening the bator too much. I do have turning racks by the way. Thanks so much for any help you can offer!
