    I have a goofy humidity question. Can the developing embryos control humidity? I have a still air bator with no turner, so I'm doing it myself. This morning when I turned the eggs the humidity was 45% before I did anything, it dropped to 40% when I opened the bator to turn, and now when I check it the humidity is up around 53%. I haven't added water or touched it since this morning. We're in CO and the humidity here is pretty low too. So what would cause that?

    Thanks,
    Sonja

    I figure it's just another part of the chicken addiction. Raise chicks, have laying hens, start incubating eggs. The anticipation is the fun part!! [​IMG]
