    I think they'll be fine. When you first put eggs in the temps and humidity change a lot and can sometimes take 12-36 hrs to actually regulate.

    I would try not to fiddle with it...really hard for me..lol and see if it will regulate on it's own.

    They will be fine...what you don't want is a high humidity for the first 18 days...Get it back into the 40 to 50% range...I like mine at 40 for the first 18 days...

    Your humidity has gone down because you put the eggs in there...give it hours for the temps and humidity to get back up

    Relax, let them be. I never watch my humidity... They should be fine.
