    What day are you on, what are you hatching, and what's your humidity with a calibrated hygrometer?

    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    After checking the humidty with a reliable hygrometer...You can lower the humidity using dry rice.

    We live in Florida, and the humidity - even in the house - can get too high for the incubator!

    Good luck!

    Going to ask a silly question here, but do you have water added to any channels inside the incubator?
    Also a dehumidifier inside the room your using can help alot if your having alot of problems.
    With all the flooding and rain lately our humidity outside has been at 100% humidity and Im still running the incubator at under 30%.
    The dry rice is a great idea.
