    70% should be fine. That's what I do with my bator. Hope they hatch!

    I am also going into lockdown tomorrow. I am in Dunnellon, just a tad north of you. Have had a hard time keeping humidity in the incubator. I believe it's much easier in the spring. Seems the air conditioner is sucking all humidity out of the house & incubator. :(
    New sponges will be added tomorrow at lockdown.. Wish you the best of luck and new chicks soon.
