    How do you get the humidity to go down in a LG still air bator? Right now it is running 77% and there is no water in the bator at all.....

    Well that is a good question. I don't know what the humidity is in the house. I guess I need to check that....[​IMG]

    do I still incubate if the humidity is that high or do I need to find a different room to put the bator in.


    Oh just for the record, this is not at my house. I am letting my friend use my bator and it is at her house. I am trying to get it regulated for her bacause this is her first hatch. I have never had this problem before at my house.

    Does she have a problem with her windows sweating real bad? If so, she probably has a lot of humidity inside her house.

    Not that I know of. It is really hot during the day though, and then it cools down at night. I am not sure what to tell her, other than "I'll be glad to incubate them", lol.
