    I am fairly new to incubating. Got a still air hovabator last fall and did a couple incubations. I fired it up and set some eggs yesterday. I remember last year that doing a dry incubation up until lockdown seemed to result in the best hatch. My house is pretty dry right now and we have electric heat. My humidity has been staying at 16%. Do I need to raise this a little or just leave it alone?

    I've seen where some have incubated with humidity that low so I would think you should be okay.
