    should be higher, but not too high, right? Say it's 45%, then you bump it to 60%. I am just curious, because several people have been telling me that it's supposed to be lower...

    Don't worry, I'm not "experimenting" with a batch of eggs in the bator or anything, I just wonderin'

    I use 40 to 50% range the first 18 days and 60 to 70% range for the last 3. I always have clean hatches without complications.
