    If I don't have any water in my homemade bator "How do I get my humidity down ?" If the humidity outside my bator is the same as or higher than the humidity inside my bator " how do I get the humidity down?" Thanks to anyone who has an answer !

    We don't have any a/c. Have not used any for years. Will fans work?

    I think you need to increase the ventilation somehow - are there vents in your incubator?

    fans will lower it, how about you toss in a dry sponge
    the surface area might absorb some of the moisture.
