    I found the hardest thing to do is control the humidity. How are you adding your humidity? What ever it is, use less. Have you checked the calibration of your hydrometer? I have never found an accurate one, they also seem to change with age, battery strength, etc.

    I put water in bottom of incubator not much at all. So I went to hardware store today bought new hydrometer with built in thermometer still reading 60 % ? I have not added any more water since Thursday when I set the eggs no change.
