    Hello,
    I need some help with my incubator. I cannot get my humidity down to 86 degrees no matter what I do. The directions say that more water is introduced into the base by holding the nut on the fountain neck and turning the fountain couterclockwise a half turn. Since I have too much humidity... never less than 90.... I keep doing the opposite because I want less water. It does not seem to change the humidity. Am I thinking the wrong way? I'm thinking the more water the greater the humidity. Yet, one day prior to putting the eggs in there was no water in there, as it had all evaporated and the humidity was 100%. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Nancy

    If you post what kind of incubator you have, maybe someone with experience with that model will be able to help you.
