    Just put eggs in incubator and after about two hours, humidity still pretty high at 65%.......temperature holding well.

    Should I just wait for humidity to naturally decrease. I did not put much water in there at all. Incubator is in basement which is naturally higher in room humidity.

    Any help is appreciated

    Quote:If it's going to decrease, it will do so fairly quickly. If it doesn't, then you can either open up some ventilation, or reduce the surface area of the water.

    It's generally not too hard, and it IS worth doing
