    My humidity wont get above 70% its hatch day I have one that hatched and 8 that have piped. Is that humidity going to be ok? I know the books say 70-80% but i cant get it up that high and all the water channels in the bater are full. Im new to this and looking for advice. Thanks

    Do not wary everything will be ok 70% is fine and as the chicks hatch the humidity will go up and if it does not 70% is still fine

    You are fine. That is good. I try to get mine between 60- 70% most of the time it is around 65%.
    Good luck with your hatch. Make sure your plugs are out :)
