    The humidity in my incubator right now is 60% and I don't even have any water in it... Is this too high for day one? I haven't set them yet, it is a still air at 102F and the two vent holes are open....

    I think it is. Got any cigar stores near you? If so, call them and see if they sell hygrometers. If they do, buy one or two, one for your bator, one for outside the bator.

    I suggest the extra hygrometer because there is a good chance that the one in your bator is way off.
