    Quote:I just finished hatching 18 of 27 eggs in a "self-regulating" Genesis 1588. During lockdown, especially once hatching began, my humidity was jumping all over the place. Fortunately I had good advice given me to not interfere, so I didn't and it worked out great, i.e., humidity of 60%-70% is not written on stone.
