    What is a safe humidity % for the coop?

    Today we have -single digits below zero, and we will not get above. My coop temp is 1 degree and humidity is 58%. Is this good?

    We will put the infareds on tonite, we're expecting -20's.

    Thanks!

    Don't know the percentage of whats good but if you have condensation on walls, windows etc you probably need more ventilation.

    Nope. No condensation. Just wonderin' what "optimal" humidity would be.

    Thanks!
