    how do I lower the humidity when the temp is at 99.5 and humidity is at 65%?
    Do I take out some water?
    I have a forced air lil giant 9200 bator. No eggs are in it yet, but should be on friday?

    If possible takeing out some water is a good idea. If possible take it all out and see what your natural humidity is and add a little bit of water til it gets to around 45%.

    Different people have different ways of doing it, I usally keep my humidity around 45% -50% the first 17 days and then at 70% the last three days.

    Berynn.......if you decrease the waters surface area your humidity % will decrease.
