    The 'bator is gearing up for another (my second) batch.

    I've had it running for a while now and realize that even with just the small C tray full of water, the humidity is over 60%.

    I think I'm right that the amount of humidity is determined by the surface amount of water, so taking water out wouldn't really reduce the surface exposed, it would just make it drop precipitously very soon.....right?

    So, I'm trying to think what to do to bring the humidity down for starting the eggs out?

    Any ideas?
