    I have the Brower Top Hatch Incubator and my humidity has been low. Will I get higher humidity with the vents open or closed? I know the temperature stays more stable with the vents closed and I assumed that the humidity would stay up higher with them closed because the moisture can't escape. Is this correct or should I open the vents?

    OK thanks that's what I thought. For some reason my humidity is running low and the water dries up really fast. It's so odd because we live right by Lake Michigan and normally the humidity in our house is really high.
