    I thought maybe so I went and bought a secondary humidity monitor and thermometer and it reads the same. I will try the tag.

    I just did and it already climbed to 50. What should I try and keep it at. I have read so many different numbers.

    Alright Shah! Just caught up, and saw all the cute chicks! Congrats! :frow



    If you added bowls and sponges and it is climbing, you should be ok. It will continue to climb as they pip and hatch. 70 is what I shoot for, a bit higher or lower, +\- 5 should be okay
