    OK. so the eggs are hatching! Yeah us! the humidity got up to 93% so I pulled the vent plug (I read somewhere they would drowned if it was too high)...what do I let it get down to before I put it back in?

    are they in a styrofoam bator?

    Try to dry out as much as the liquad as you can , as fast as you can.

    I do not like these bators for hatching, the humidity always gets too high during hatching.

    You can also move the chicks out, as soon as they are free from the shell

    Thank you. I haven't moved any of the chicks out, they are still hatching but I did pull a vent plug like I said and the humidity is down to 89%
