    Is there any way for you to up the humidity? You can try putting a wet sponge in there. What matters is surface area, not how much water is in the water wells. I guess I would just try to put wet sponges and paper towels in there...I hope it goes ok.

    I think I got it. One of the ac vents is blowing toward the incubator. I moved the vent and hung a blanket in front of the incubator. Looks like everything is going good 8 chicks have hatched. Thanks!
