    Set eggs in incubator Monday night. Humidity is 55% without any water in it. Should I open a vent?

    I would....that's a little high. Did you calibrate your hygrometer before you started though? Do you trust that it is reading accurately?

    I do best at 20 to 30 for incubation and 75 for lockdown. if u trust ur meter to be right then open a vent to try and get it down...
