    All my chicks have hatched and the hum is now 98% for a few hours, is that bad for the chicks?

    Are your wet chicks still in the bator? If so thats why and if you have one of those bators with plugs take them out.

    If they have hatched take them out to the brooder.

    can they die from too much humidity after they hatch?

    Aslong as there are no puddles of water the chicks can fall into your fine...Since the humidity is from the chicks hatching its not actual like condensation in the bator so your fine. You can open the bator and take out the ones that are completely dry and put them in the brooder, by opening it for a few seconds to do that will drop the humidity a little bit and just let the others chill and dry out in there.
