    Turned out that my automatic humidity system had a kink in the hose and the water tray was DRY, so the wet bulb thermometer was now a dry bulb! I must have walked by last night and glanced at the temp, but not the humidity [​IMG] It's back up to 50% now and is still creeping back up slowly, so I hope my babies will be OK.

    What day are you on? What humidity are you aiming for?

    As long as they aren't in the last three days, a day with too low of a humidity won't hurt. It's the long term that does them in.

    I'm shooting for about 60% right now. I'm on day 11. These are Penedesencas. I have some Barred Bantam Cochins in there too, but I do don't think they shipped well [​IMG]
