    My babies are hatching 4 are out - and I just looked at the humidity - it has jumped up into the 80's -

    I had dropped to low 60's earlier tonight, I added a little warm water, then 2 chicks hatched and my humidity spiked [​IMG] ???

    I have do not open ringing in my head - will it automatically come back down again? Or should I have not added that little bit of warm water?

    AHH!!! I hope I didn't hurt anything.

    Dont worry these spikes will happen when those eggs open up. Its just a gush of moisture. You said U just added a small amount of water, you are on the right track. Stay there and DONT OPEN it up. [​IMG]
