    A little worried...day 10 and my aircells look smaller than I would like.

    Problem is, with no water in the wells I'm running 39-40% humidity. I have the Brinsea mini advance. How do I bring down the humidity to see some better air cell development??

    I live in Hawaii, humidity runs 80-100% all day, every day.

    Thanks for any help. I set 7, and so far all 7 look good, lots of movement seen, just smallish aircells. They are getting bigger, but ever so slightly so.

    Did you calibrate your hygrometer to be sure its giving an accurate reading? At 39-40%, your eggs should be loosing a pretty good amount of moisture. Dry rice is great for absorbing excess humidity. Good luck!
