    If the humidity is running high....say 60-70% through the whole incubation how will it affect the eggs?

    I don't think it will make much of a difference, but I'm not sure.

    I did keep it at 60-70%, the results are okay and successful. I do not think they effect the eggs at all. But low humidity DOES! :D

    Not sure what the "too high" magic number is but you are close to it. If it is too high during incubation water will enter the egg through the pores and chicks can drown in shell.

    Not going over 70%. But here in Malaysia, my humidity always goes above the 70% mark, because it is already very humid here. Management is the important part. Too high humidity, change to a smaller sized water container. To low, then use a bigger water container. [​IMG]
