    Ok so I set my incubator up today and it has been running all day. The humidity feels high (like I feel dampness in the air lol ) How do I measure that???

    Does my thermometer tell me??

    WHile learning you may want to use 2 hydrometers. One for inside the incubator and one for the room. Very educational.

    You can get a thermometer/hygrometer at Walmart in the Garden Department.
