    Am I doing the right thing. I have 6 duck eggs pipped and in lockdown.
    I have a Brinsea ECO 20. Both water chambers are full and there are some paper towels in the bottom.
    My humidity keeps going to 60%. So I opened it reall fast and misted the eggs. Then the humidity jumps to 75%, but I drops back down to 60% eventually.
    Is it OK to keep misting, or will this dry out the eggs. [​IMG]
