    We had a few thunderstorms go through and my humidity levels are now at 85% I am at day 19. Is there anything I can do or do I just hope for the best. This is my first batch and I am SO nervous.

    Personally since it is day 19 and you could theoretically have a hatch anytime, I wouldn't worry.

    I worry about too much humidity when they are younger and getting too big wouldn't be good.

    Thanks!
    I have no pips yet and there is only 2 out of 9 that made it to lockdown so hoping atleast one hatches. I do have another incubator running with 12 more at day 17 that is on the high side. I was able to remove the sponge and drop the humidity so hoping for the best:)

    I always try to spread the word to folks:

    Brinsea has a free downloadable incubation handbook with all kinds of recommendations on their website that I found useful.
    That is where I bought my incubator.
