    my incubator humidity is running way too high! Around 100 constant and will even get up to 110! Why? If I stop putting water in it still it stays that high. Any ideas??

    Oh wow!! What day are you on? What sort of climate do you live in? Have you tried pulling out the vent plugs? What type of incubator are you using? Are you using a separate hygrometer?

    If you have removed the plugs, and you live in a very humid climate area, you may need to put a dehumidifier in the room where you have the incubator.

    Your meter is faulty if it is reading over 100%

    Get anothe meter and re-test the air.

    x2 sounds like you need a new hygrometer. You can also do the test/calibration on the one you have, but I highly recommend a new one.
