    My thermometer/humidity gauge reads 99 degrees with a humidity of 65% with water in only one tray and both plugs out.
    I am hatching silkie eggs.
    How can I get the humidity down?
    What is ideal humidity for the first 18 for silkies?
    thanks for responding.

    PS (have a small fan going inside also)
