    Are you planning to use that humidity level? Many of us have found that we have a much better hatch if we incubate at 30 - 40% humidity until lock down. Does that bator have a fan? I also suggest that you calibrate a thermometer against a good medical digital or bulb thermometer and check to see how accurate the thermometer built into that bator is. Many hatches are ruined by faulty calibration and too much humidity.

    Yes it has a fan inside. I am going to put another thermometer inside if I can find it
