    Hi,
    I am currently hatching quail eggs. am on day 10 today. A few days back my humidity shot up to 70% and stayed that way for around 24 hrs. do you think this would have affected my hatch rate?

    I am currently only on my first chicken hatch so I am not 100% sure cause I am new to this, but from what I have heard humidity levels changing for a short while will not hurt them, but also I have been told that a lower humidity level is less dangerous than a high one. Sorry I am not much help, but I am still learning.
