I have a little giant styrofoam incubator and have put water in the channels for lockdown just this morning. My humidity has not risen at all. I don't understand how I could have added water and still the humidity does not change. I even added a wet cloth diaper insert and I got nothing. Has anyone using a styrofoam thing like this ever had such issues? For the life of me I can't get it above 50%. And it keeps fluctuating up and down. Could something be wrong with it? I only have three keets in there but I know they're alive and id hate for this to keep them from hatching after all this time. I'm so scared imagining them trying to come out but they can't

I add two warm water soaked sponges to mine. Seems to push it up to 70 if not higher almost instantly. We still use the Styrofoam incubator but I built a foam box around the Styrofoam incubator that works great now! I don't have heat or humidity issues anymore

I have added multiple sponges and washcloths to no avail. I think I will try boxing it in with whatever I have now and maybe I'll be able to get my hands on some styrofoam tomorrow. air cells are very slanty so any day now
