    Okay it's day 18 I took the eggs out of the turner and filled all the reseviors and it was still only about 43% humidity so I placed some wet cotton balls and the humidity is at 58%. Should I add more cotton balls?

    Should I continue with the temp at 99.5?

    I can't wait.

    I used a large sponge soaked with water to up my humidity. Worked great it brought mine up to 70% and only had to rewet in once. Hope that helps
