    I have Serama eggs pipping. I checked on them at 3:30 a.m. and saw that the humidity level had fallen to 55... temp had dropped a degree as well. I added water and brought the levels back up. Should I worry about the chicks membranes, or is that acceptable?

    You will just have to watch.. I would think that since you say that humidity dropped that it was higher, so you should be good to go yet. did you raise the temp?
    you should tweak only either the temp or the humidity.. not both at the same time.. one affects the other. raising the temp might have also raised the hum. for you..

    At this point I would not get too drastic.. 55% is not that bad..

    I added water with a straw and that also raised the temp. Thank you!
