My incubator is 68 percent humidity. is that to humid? If it is, how do I make it go down?
Quote:how far into incubation are you? can you pull plugs out?
I'm in my second day of incubation.
Quote:yes is high
you should keep humidity 35 to 40% from day 1 to 18
raise humidity to 65-75% on the last 3 days
Quote:yes, to high...do you have the plugs in? if so pull one out and then watch humidity go down ..If it's not enough pull both out until it goes down to 45% ish....
What kind of incubator do you have?
if this is the hovabator
you should have the red plugs removed until lockdown day
I agree with the other posts, the humidity is too high. I would first remove a plug and monitor the humidity. If you need to remove both plugs.
Well, I've just got the temp to 100 after 2 days...I'm not sure I want to unplug anything, do you think if I took some water out of the water tray that the humidity would go down?????
Quote:You should keep your incubator without plugs from day 1 to day 18 .
1 way to retain more humidity in the batro is by placing paper towels under the wire, this way the humidity last longer and you dont have to add much water trough the day
