    I am moving my eggs into a hatcher and was wondering if I should if I should have the humidity upbefore I put them in there or raise it after they go in? Crystal

    Get the temp and humidity stable before adding the eggs. It will fluctuate for a few hours after you add eggs and then stabilize again.
