    The humidity in my incubator was to high so I tuned it off and took out the eggs. When I turned on the bator it was at 94 degrees for 15 minutes will it effect my hatch?[​IMG]

    Quote:Why did you take the eggs out as opposed to just venting out the high humidity??. either way you should be fine.

  4. A hen will get off her nest for up to an hour to eat drink and relieve herself. You should be fine.

    I tried that, but the humidity was soooooo high I decided to dump out the water, and it worked!

    P.S thanks for all the help:D

    no, hens leave their nests when sitting on eggs to eat and drink.
