I am having some problems with humidity. I go to work, the humdity is 48%. I come home it's 21%. I put 1/4 cup of water in and it's 53%. Any suggestions to stablize the humidity?
Is this going to hurt the chicks?

what are you using to hold the water? What matters is the surface area of the water, not how deep it is...

how many ventilation holes do you have? You may need to close some....

What kind of 'bator are you using?

Try some sponges. If a whole one ups your humidity too much cut it in smaller pieces and keep adding them until you hit the humidity level you want. I have found this works better for me because the water evaporates too fast out of the bottom and it is hard to add more water with my egg turner in there. This way I can quickly grab sponges out and resoak.
