Its day 18. I just candled the eggs and am putting the incubator on lock down. I know the humidity needs to be higher for hatching. Is it 50-60%? I have used the dry hatching method so I have run at 35% or there about for the whole hatching thus far. Need an answer soon. Thanks!

I run mine around 50% for days 1-18 and then increase to around 65% for days 18-21. As long as it's between 60-70, I have clean hatches too.

Well good news and bad news. The eggs are moving and you can hear faint cheeping, and the temp is holding solid at 101. The bad news...the humidity is down to 35. What do I do?
