    A couple days ago i took away the eggs from my guinea hen, the day before they were suppose to hatch. 9/10 hatched tuesday a day late then this morning the last hatched. But i didn't have water in there for them. And when i try to incubate in there they never hatch so i think the humidity is the right level for hatching but not incubation. How do i lower the humidity of the house, and we do have our ac on.

    A dehumidifier in the room with the incubator would be the best way.

    If you put it in a place where it can drain outdoors or into a sink, you wouldn't have to worry about emptying the tank. Or drain it into your septic/sump.
