    Sounds go to me, don't want the babies to drowned.....I go with 25% low and 55% High...but to each his own. Good Luck!
    BYC is the place where everyone started out being an egg!

    Read the thread....Humidity in Bator....everyone should read.
    I realize it is long, but it might save sometime for you and educate at the same time....BYC is the place we all start the race as an EGG!
