    Tomorrow I go on lockdown. I have 3 silkies and 2 americauna EE's to hatch. Humidity is around 62% and temp is still at 99.5..... should I increase the temp or humidity? I'm thinking at least 65% and temp is okay? Please give me some tips..this is my first hatch and I'm so excited!!

    Try to increase your humidity to 70% and sit on your hands for at least the next 3 days! Good luck! Temprature is good.

    Bringing the humidity up to 70% or 75% is easy.

    It's the sitting on your hands part that's tough!
