    I really am worried right now, what should my humidity be? It went down to about 33% and now it is creeping it's way up to 50%, what should I do?

    I think things will probably be just fine. Just dont let it get too high above 50% for any lengh of time.

    I kept mine about 50% and let it drop down to 35% before adding water. This is for the first 18 days.

    I'm going to try the dry incubating method next time. Out of 15 viable eggs, I only got 3 chicks. I think I let the humidity get too high. Good luck, Peeps....

    Hi, peeps! Anywhere from 30-50 is fine for the first 18 days, but I usually keep mine between 40 and 50%. Glad there are alot of knowledgable people around to help!
