Lockdown time. What Humidity Again?

So I just put my eggs in lockdown. I opened the little place for air fully, took the egg turner out, placed a little bit of material down to make them not slip as easily, and now I have to make the humidity get higher. I know it’s somewhere between 65-75%, but I’m unsure which one. Also, temperature is the same right?
Before humidity was 50% and temperature 99.5 degrees

See above, just a little bit of a cloth-like fabric material. Not too much to block humidity. I read earlier you should do this, so I did. But humidity is at 51% currently, and it didn’t take too much to get up there. (I candled again also. 8/8 fertile eggs, 8/8 alive eggs, and 4/8 are active and moving.)

Looks good! Humidity should be around 65% until you notice an external pip, then up it to 70%.

I usually aim for 70 - 75%. In my experience 65 just isn't high enough. Good luck with your hatch!
