    ive seen that high humidity cause water or liquid to gather inside the egg
    and can drown the chick when its time to hatch..my frist ever hatch i kept my bator at a constant
    80% humidity and wow was it bad only three out of 18 developed eggs hatched and they were because
    they pipped from the side so the liquid spilled out [​IMG] never again now i only raise when needed this last hatch
    out of all 28 developed chicks only one didnt make it i think it was just to weak it pipped inside but never cracked
    the shell..
