I do you lessen or increase the humidity in your bator?
Depends on the bator. Some you open vents some you remove sponges. What incubator are you specifically talking about? If you want to up humidity add more surface area to your water. I use sponges or paper towels.

Like in many incubators is very easy to increase humdity but is dificult to lower it once is high.since I own a genesis 1588 this is my recomendation
first of all get a good Hydrometer like this one
Second use the salt methond to test it, this hydrometers are very close to 75%,use the link to read about it
once you know how acurate is your hydrometer run your incubator for 24 hours without water... nothing
put your hydrometer since the beginig
after 24 hours you should be able to tell what is the current humidity in your house
you may need to add some water but im sure very little
1 teaspoon at the time and wait
I forgot to say that the incubator must run without the red plug
feel free to ask
thanks for this. i'm new to chicken raising...got some tips...

Thanks everybody. I ordered a hygrometer with the incubator and I think I am good to go. I hope it gets here today.
