Everyone have a great day!
You do the same Mike.
I took out the sponge and took off the vent caps to let it come down its at 39% now and it's been a good few minutes.
How are the goatlings?
Day 4. I assumed I need to let the moisture escape for the levels to drop a bit. Do i put them back in its at 37%. Like I said I new to this and asking for help
Areas of MOST IMPORTANCE in Hatching EGGS
Ventilation (Oxygen), Temperature, Humidity, Egg Turning/Positioning
Ventilation is VERY important during the incubation process.
While the embryo is developing, oxygen enters the egg through the shell and carbon dioxide escapes. Oxygen requirements will increases during development and during hatching. Unobstructed ventilation holes, both above and below the eggs, are essential for proper air exchange. REMOVE RED VENT PLUGS, TOO MANY PEOPLE FORGET TO REMOVE THEM AT DAY 10! NOTE: When Lockdown occurs, vent openings are frequently restricted in an attempt to boost incubator humidity. Instead of helping the chick hatch, the chick is suffocated from lack of oxygen. Never decrease ventilation openings at hatching in an attempt to increase humidity. Increase humidity by other methods. If any vent adjustments are made, they should be opened more. Try adding a dampened sponge or towel to help boost humidity during lockdown.
