    New at this bator deal.... I am on my 5th day of batoring an dose the humidity go up because of the eggs or what? I ran the LG (junk) for a week before I put eggs in it an had no trouble keeping the humidity constant. 40 --45- When I put the eggs in the first day an 1/2 stayed ok From their till now up to 50 ---54 ? No water added. [​IMG]

    Maybe its just mad at you for calling it junk [​IMG] .
    Ok I would see if it goes down over the next 24 hours and if it dosnt take out a little of the water. And though I shoot for 40-45% I dont think 50 would be to horrible on the eggs for a couple days so try not to sweat it. Big thing with LG is not to muck with them unless you have to.
    Good luck [​IMG]

    Yes I found out the hard way about messing with the LG! I sure do wish I had found this site before I got my LG... I think I will get another one an use the lg for a brooder.

    Thank you
