So here is my second thread trying to get to the bottom of this. I set 16 button quail eggs in the incubator yesterday afternoon, so I guess today would be considered Day 1, right? Anyway, I have a Little Giant incubator that I installed a fan in. Even with the water reservoirs full and a styrofoam cup with wet paper towels, I can only get the humidity up to the mid-30's?????? Please, can anyone give me any ideas on how I can get it up to the 50-60% that I believe is recommended? Should I add another styrofoam cup with paper towels? The temperature is 99.5 according to the thermometer in there that I trust (I have two in there, one is digital for the humidity). When I woke up this morning the humidity was at 25% (Yikes). The paper towel had dried out and the reservoirs were a little low. I promptly filled the reservoirs and wet the paper towels. I haven't gone back in to check, but I know it wont be above the 30's. This early on, Please tell me the low humidity won't have effected my little eggs!!!!! First time, and I am super nervous!
