I'm wondering about humidity levels for a natural hatch. A friend told me to cut a piece of sod and place it dirt side up, covered in a few inches of shavings, in the nest box. That was back when I set the eggs - 19 days ago. He said this would help provide moisture & cushion the eggs. I feel good about having done this, but I'm wondering if there's enough humidity in the nest box at this point. I poked my finger down into the sod a couple of days ago, and it feels dry. Pine shavings suck the moisture out of, well, anything moist. On the other hand, it's not like it hasn't been & won't continue to rain for the next four days...there's a lot of moisture in the air & surely some in the coop. Does the hot little broody body provide enough humidity? Just wondering. It's my first natural hatch.
