    My incubator is reading in at 75% Humidity, how do I lower this asap? It's very warm here and humid right now. Will this dry the eggs out?

    Take the lid off for a bit, just 20 seconds or so and reduce the amount of water in the wells in the incubator. In a very humid climate I run the incubator dry and add a splash of water now and then when I see the humidity is getting too low. 75% will not dry them out, rather the opposite. It could cause moisture build-up in the air cells which could drown the chicks. Good luck with your hatch!
