Can anyone tell me how to lower the humidity on this incubator?
Hi, hope you are enjoying BYC!
Maybe you can remove water from the wells? Make sure all plugs are removed. Lift the lid and wipe off the condensation also.
I believe your gauge is off... have you calibrated it or do you have another to compare with? At 62% you should not be seeing condensation.
What day are you on? If your counter is correct... I might just leave it since you don't have that many eggs in there they shouldn't raise humidity too much farther when hatching. You can still wipe the condensation off the lid if you don't see pips already and you want to. But if hatching has started.. don't worry about it.
Also...if you are on day 21 turn the turner off.
More information needed. What day your on is important.
We are on day 1, just put them in. The timer counts down however many days you put on there so we started at 21 and it will count down from there. I removed one plug about an hour ago and the humidity has started going down some. It is now down to 56%.
I begin at around 50% and drop humidity according to the air cell size further along in the incubation. At lockdown I set to 60%
What you can do instead of putting water in the bottom of the bator is put a little dish of water inside the bator...that way there is less surface area.
I highly recommend running to Wal-Mart to buy another thermometer or two (fish section of the store) and another humidity gauge AnD calibrating the thermometers and salt testing the humidity gauge. Highly recommend doing this today.
Could not agree more. And lose the plugs.
Being your on day one it's nothing to worry about. Your incubator could be right it's just the humidity is a bit high. Too much water added and the vents were not open.
I only use my incubators information and have great success.
