    What did the manufacturer of your incubator suggest for humidity?

    It's says around 65 to 70% my concern is incubator shows 55 but hygrometer inside shows 65% more concern with which ones accurate.

    Did you calibrate the hygrometer you put in there?
    I wouldn't trust the one on the incubator, they're notoriously inaccurate. Mine always reads 45% no matter how much water is or isn't in there :D
    I keep my humidity somewhere around 30-45% for the first 18 days, then up it to 60-70% for lockdown.
