    I am new to this forum and have so much to learn. I am trying to hatch eggs right now but am having trouble keeping my humidity consistent. It seems too high.

    Greetings from Kansas and [​IMG]! Great to have you in our community! I am a hatching rookie so you might want to post your question/concern in this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/5/incubating-hatching-eggs Some real experts patrol that forum and should be able to help you out.
    And for general information the Learning Center is hard to beat: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    And if you'd like to talk with some local poultry folk, find the CT thread in this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!

    Hi! Welcome to BYC! I will answer you here, and probably again in the incubating thread.
    Humidity is from the surface area of water. Meaning a deep bowl gives less humidity than a plate.
    If the humidity is too high, put dry rice in a stocking (or sock) and add it to the incubator. The rice will suck up the moisture.

    G’Day from down under Farmgrlatheart2 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some good advice and links, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
