    How can I tell if the humidity level in the incubator is too high?

    you need a hydrometer that reads the humidity in the incubator. Do you have one?

    Can I ask what's wrong with your springfields? That's all I have, and I have 4 of them. If soemthing's wrong, I hadn't noticed it...

    I got my hydrometer at Pet Valu, but any pet supply store would have them.
