[​IMG] Hopefully come friday I will have some little fuzzy butts!!! [​IMG] I am so excited after listening to all of you talking about your babies!! These are going to be the longest 3 days ever.

    Did you get your hygrometer calibrated? Good luck with your hatch!

    Quote:Yes, the one that came w/the bator was off by 4 and the one from wal-mart was off by 15. I am having some trouble getting the humidity up now though. It is stuck on 61. I have a cabinet bator and I have 4 pans of water in it w/washcloths and I can't seem to get it to go up any higher, any suggestions?

    I am only on my first hatch and day 17. I think you should be ok with 61%, I know if I add hot water to mine (just an LG still air) it raised the humidity quicker and with less water. Maybe someone else will see this and know.
    Good Luck!!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
