    So i just put egg's in my incubator i had the temp at 99.5 and humidity at 45% but now that the eggs are in the humidity is at 50% going up is that normal?

    Last year i tried 8 times 8!! with 6 eggs each just from my hens they all got blood spots and matured a little but that last time i only got 1 chick and then he didn't make it cause he wouldn't eat.... hopefully this year will work i have 1 roo for 10 hens i have them on an egg turner i hope i get it right this time.

    That's normal. Give everything time to stabilize and it should come right back to your previous setting. Don't change anything, just give it time.
