    I finally got a hygrometer and I noticed that the humidity was pretty high. I only set in the the bator for a few min and it was in the 60's already! So I took out the eggs and mopped up ALOT of water in the bottom. I am waiting for the new humidity level. Could the high humidity have been harmful to the embryos?? They have been in the bator for 3 days, this is day 4

    Thanks. I wasn't prepared for incubating, so if they don't hatch its my fault
