    I have two bators going, one 1588 with fan and turner, and an lg with turner only. This is day three. Humidity in 1588 was 68 lg was 66 so I took almost all of the water out of both and humidity is still in the 60's.
    Humidity in the room is 37. Hygromerer's are correct I checked both. Both are full with 42 eggs each. Temp is fine in both. Help!

    Are your plugs on the top out, I would open them to let out some of the humidity if you can, if not it will come down in a while. I don't think a temporary jump in humidity will hurt anything. Don't get to worried.

    just open the vents holes till it comes down to around 40% and do not add any water till it gets to 28% and you will be fine. william ps i just set 26 more eggs in my homemade bator
