    Does humidity effect the temperature inside the incubator?

    I'm new to incubating eggs but from what I have experienced, no. When you open the incubator to add more water to raise humidity, the temperature and humidity drop. Cover it back up and be patient, wait about a hour, and watch the levels. I suggest reading about the "dry hatch method" if you are incubating eggs. Best of luck to you!
