Today is day 18/19 and I'm having a heck of a time getting my humidity to stay over 65%. I have an LG still-air and have all the wells full, plus a maxi-pad under each vent hole (both are soaked). Right now the temp is 101.5 and humidity is 67%, but that's with both red plugs in. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the humidity to stay up like it's supposed to? Is 67% high enough? Shouldn't the red plugs be out? If I remove them, the humidity drops down below 65%.

I have an LG and I have no idea what the humidity is. I never have. I just keep the water wells full, added 2 sponges and turn the book under them 3 or 4 times a day, I did pull one of the red plugs out before I ever put my eggs in. My GS dog got in one of his guianias nest and ate most of the eggs, they brought 6 over and everyone said to throw them away, they weren't gonna hatch, so far I have hatched three,temp never ranges over 100 but has dropped some at times. If they hatch, they hatch, if they don,t I'll toss them and start over. marrie

yes the red plugs are suppose to be taken out & at this point both of them. Get a sponge, wash cloth or a sock wet it & slip it in if the humidity is around 60 to 65 it's going to be ok & when the first hatches the humidity is going to shoot way up.. I think more important that humidity is the plugs coming out they need the air circulation.
