    I was a little over excited because my humidity had dropped during the night so I add to much water and now the humidity is too high. what can I do to bring it down?

    Don't open the incubator during lockdown. If you have a still air bator, you can take one of the top plugs out to vent. If you were dry incubating, I wouldn't worry about it anyway. What is the humidity now?

    it got up to 80 so i opened a vent. It is a still air, but I didn't want to open it and let out the heat.

    You should be fine. With the vent open the humidity will go down a bit. Do you have any pips yet?

    i had two that had pipped last night and then nothing this morning, they were shrink wrapped, so I had to help them out. I still have 8 eggs in there that nothing has happened with. They are serama eggs so they usually hatch at 19 days and later.
