    How do you keep your humidity down, I took my vent plug out, I have a wet towel under my screen, and several little cups filled with water, I would like for my humidity to stay at 70 to 75% does anyone have any little tricks

    Well if you want your humidity to go down, you need to take out the wet towel and some of the cups. The more water you have in the bator the high the humidity.

    UP... higher humidity = close vent plugs, more water, damp cloth


    DOWN...lower humidity = open vent plugs, less water, NO damp cloth etc..
