What should the humidity be at the beginning for chicken eggs? I haven't put any water in the bater yet, I don't have a hygrometer, the living room thermometer indicates 35%, my hova bator is one level up in the loft, the floor plan is open so I suspect the air around it is near that 35%. I read all sorts of things on the FAQ page and can't keep anything straight in my head. I remember reading a blog post by some guy who does dry incubation and had great results (I believe he does add water toward the end, but only tablespoons?) I haven't hatched anything in a few years so I may as well be a newbie at this.
