I think the answer to this also depends on the climate where you live. I’m in north eastern Washington state. I run my incubator 30-45% during the first 18 and then raise to 55-60% for lockdown. If I did dry technique it would sit at 4% 😅 haven’t had the guts to try it yet…

Same here! It’s very humid in MS but I’m having a hard time risking an entire hatch on an experiment. I love the idea of a more simplistic hatching experience though. Maintaining 50-60% takes some effort but I know it works. Those of you that dry hatch, how low does it get???

That’s a great question, wondering the same on how low it’s ok to go 🤔
