    Just went into lockdown today, I have 11 eggs will see what happens in the next couple of days. I have a question, if humidity is too high and you can't open the incubator, how do you get it down???

    Well, in that case, you CAN open the 'bator to reduce/expel some of the excess humidity. It's when it RIGHT you don't want it to drop dangerously low!

    do you have any vent holes?

    if my humidity is too high, i open one or both of my vents until it drops back down.
