I've got 9% loss at day 22. I've kept the humidity at 50-60% as recommended by Porter's. Not sure it'll get down another 2% by lock down on Saturday. This is my very first hatch ever. The next battle will be maintaining a high humidity. I've been reading and have strategies in place. Just hoping my Bronze and Chocolate poults are peeping on Wednesday. Thanks for your help.

If you're concerned, I'd let it go dry for the next 3 days. That may be enough. As for maintaining a high humidity, surface area makes it go up more than volume so a sponge or other means to increase surface area. There are also humidity pads that serve the same purpose.
