    Did you only fill one trough in the tray? If so, it should adjust over the next hour or so. It does typically jump until the hygrometer has time to adjust the reading.

    What day are you on for incubating?

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    You can open a vent hole, place aluminum foil over part of the water resoirvor.

    This happened with my hova-bator, and I only put a little water. But I still got 100% hatch.

    It should be okay.
