    So I live on the coast in BC and it's very humid here. And my problem is that I have no water in my incubator it is warm and dry (feeling) inside and the humidity is still 70%... Im pretty sure my hygrometer is in food shape too, so anyone have any suggestions? I'm only on day 3 here... But I was hoping I'd get to dry incubate, not looking like it. Also two 2inch diameter vents on either end are wide open and have been for the past two days.

    I used air conditioning to remove the moisture; I tried using a dehumidifier first but it put out soooo much heat the temp in the incubator was increasing. AC worked better for me.
