    So, I just put a couple eggs in the old bator, but I was wondering what the right humidity was for an incubator. Last three times I hatched I kept the humidity at a steady 70%. I have heard you shouldn't have it that high until the last few days, but I had successful hatches all three times. I just wanted to see how the experts do it. Thank you all for advice!!!:p

    After all the recommendations in the world have been given, what works for you in your environment is the way to go. If your hatches have been successful, I wouldn't change a thing.
