    I have water collecting on the edges of my LG incubator windows on day 20..

    Humidity ok or too high?
    I can hear chirping but dont want them to drown!

    Sunny side up :)
    Too high. What does your hygrometer read and did you calibrate it before you started?

    They are starting to poke through.. I have the wells, a dish of water, and a sponge. I quickly removed the sponge and opened one of the red tabs. I should be ok?

    My mom never measured the humidity.....just the temp and she always did fine, but just for safety's sake, I guess I will get such an animal. I cranked up the incubator last night and I'm trying to get that perfect temp. Might put some eggs in tonight or tomorrow.
