what is the right humidity mine says 45% now.
What day of your incubation are you on?
And what are you incubating?
incubating chicken eggs 7th day
Sounds great to me. You should keep it at about 45%-50% the first 18 days. 65%-70% the last three days.
I had some bantams hatch out at about 40-50 %humidity from day one until the hatch date....I just hatched out 12 little partridge cochins and it started out at 60% and the last 3 days I took it up to 80+%...I had more eggs in the incubator, but they are fine.
usually with the humidity higher than 75% the last three days some of the chicks drown in the egg. Humidity isnt like temp. it doesnt have to be perfect and can vary greatly depending on your personal preferences.
