Hey guys! Just wanted to ask a question and see if I'm being paranoid 😅. I've got Indian runner duck eggs currently in lockdown. I've had stable humidity and temps the whole time. When I placed then in lockdown this morning, I added a tiny bit of water as the humidity had dropped when I opened the incubator up. Now the humidity has been sitting at 80% and I can't get it to come down. I tried opening the bator to lower it but it quickly went right back up. Will it even out? What should I do here? Thanks all!

Open your vent holes, it should balance out in about an hour or 2, recheck the humidity to see if it's getting closer to where it should be. Do you have 2 or 3 vent holes on your incubator?

It has 1 vent on the top. Thanks for all the advice everyone! 😁
