    I need to get my humidity up, its at 30% and I don't know what to do. I have a fan, a light, a sponge in a bowl of water plus a bucket of water and I spray the eggs daily. HELP!!!!!

    Duck and geese eggs I need help; the temp is OK.

    I built a homemade bator made of walnut the heat and the ventilation is OK, but the humidity is so low, but I don't have a clue what to do.

    Use a clean new sponge, or a washcloth to get the humdity up. Soak it and put it in the bator.
