    I am on day 18 in the incubator. I see a few of my 22 eggs starting to move a little. Im unclear on how high the humidity should be at this time.. Is it 50-60% or 70 to 80%? Please help I don't want to hurt my little chickies...

    Bump up the humidity to around 65% and good luck with the hatch!

    I usually have hatch humidity be around 70%. I think anywhere from 65%-80% is safe.
