Should I be concerned??
What are you hatching?
My chicken eggs were at 54% this morning.
My goose eggs were at 64%, also with condensation on the lid....
Oh sorry, should add we are day 19 and 21 for chickens.
I was told to try to get it up around 70% and did at first then dropped it back to around 65-68% it is now running closer to 63-65% and I have some condensation in one corner of the plastic window.
I'd say it's probably fine--but to be safe, I'd aim for 70%. I would make sure the bottom of the 'bator is filled & I use little butter dishes which I sit in there, filled with water.
I would follow that advise also. You are probably fine because I had 100 % hatch and my humidity was only at 50% because I live in the very dry desert. Everybody came out just fine. Just try to add more surface area of water.
Oh I have no trouble bringing up the humidity, my concern is that if I have condensation on the plastic am I running the risk of it building up inside the egg and drowning the chick when it pips the membrane.
it just means the room is much cooler than inside of bator.
