    So I have 4 eggs that are pipping righ tnow inside of a Brinsea Eco 20 and the humidity is at 48 and the temp at 99.5. Is there anything I can do to bring the humidity up or do I have to let it be??
    Any help is welcome!
    Thanks

    oh I had the same problem in my brinsea. Put a sponge under the vent/air hole and open the air hole all the way or enough to put a staw in then wet the sponge from the straw so you dont have to open the bator. You could still open the bator enough just to put a sponge in. It wont hurt! Good luck!

    Yaa! The humidity is keeping a constant 62. Is this to high?

    usually you should stay in a range of 65-70% but 62 is good enough!
