    I have some eggs on lockdown and I accidently added too much water to it and the humidity went up to 84 so far. I can't open it to get the water out and I didn't want to leave it if they might drown. I think I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. Is there any advice or something I could do that I don't know. Am I just going to have to wait it out and hope for the best?

    Open it up and get some water out quick. Open it up will reduce some humidity. When it's that high, it's OK to lose some.

    Thanks. I decided that it couldn't hurt so I opened it and sopped it up. I have left it alone now. I also put the plugs back in. I hope it lowers a good amount and works out.
