Hello everyone. I have turkey eggs on day 21 and chicken eggs on day 14. The air cells seem to be too small. Can I decrease humidity to 25-35% or will that affect the chicks? My humidity has been between 40 and 50%. Thanks for the help! Here are some pictures from day 20 for the turkeys and day 13 for the chickens. Do the air cells look small to you guys?

So they are all due to hatch together?
Just let the incubator dry out completely. Don't have any water in there for the next 5 days. If you have a dehumidifier, put that in a room or closet with the incubator. Then run the humidity up for the last 2 days.

Yeah they’re all supposed to hatch together. I don’t have a dehumidifier. Is there anything else I can do to lower humidity?
