Ok, I have a Farm Innovators incubator (forced air w/fan.) I just put my first batch of eggs in lockdown this evening. I've been doing a dry hatch, and my humidity has been consistently at about 29-30% without adding any water. This evening, I removed the turner, laid a terrycloth dish towel over the wire screen and laid my eggs on it. I have an external thermometer/hygrometer with wire leads that go through the little hole in the bator that the power cord for the turner goes through, and I have a backup therm/hygrometer inside. My problem: when I first put the eggs back in this evening, after removing the turner, I also added a little bowl with a sponge and a VERY small amount of water. My humidity shot up to 99% on the main hygro and 85% on the backup hygro within about 15 minutes. I took out the bowl, but the humidity is not going down at all. It's been about 3 hours now. Temp is good. I have no idea how to get the humidity down to where it needs to be and I'm afraid these babies are going to drown. I took the hygro lead out and let it sit on my kitchen counter for a little while to see if it would kind of "reset" itself, but as soon as I put it back in, it shot back up to 99%. I'm not going to be able to sleep until I have this under control, as I am worried about what can happen in the 8 hours I'm asleep! Grrrrr!!!!! Help!!!
