    Hi everybody,

    I am new to this site. I actually live in the southwest of Australia. I want to hatch some Australorp eggs as i already have some but i don't think i can in Winter. When i try the incubator without any water, the reading is still 65% humidity so i don't think it will work unless there is someway i can reduce humidity?

    Looking forward to hearing from everyone.

    Are you sure your hygrometer is accurate? If you have not calibrated it yet you might double check it.

    Pretty birds :)
