    Hello this is my first time hatching eggs and I'm super nervous because I bought a magic fly auto Turner and the humidity checker. No matter what I have done the humidity is constantly at like 70. It's changes when I got ouside or leave it in the bedroom but it's always at 70 in the incubator with no water, a little water, or a lot of water. I'm really terrified lol. It's at 79 not and I'm really worried can someone please help asap?

    Have you checked your humidity with a different hygrometer. The one you're ising sounds like it isn't registering.

    Well now I'm son fused because I checked it an hour later and now it's at 53. Maybe I didn't give it long enough?
