    I know this question has probably been asked a bunch of times, but I looked at the sticky threads to humidity and did not find my answer. Soooooo I have 2 humidifiers in the incubator and they are 10 degrees off in humidity!

    My digital Acurite brand says 47%

    My mechanical regular one says 57%

    Such a drastic difference! Which one should I be using and is correct? [​IMG]

    I'd say that range is good enough. Don't worry about humidity so much.

    Sounds good silkie! I have not been hatching for years and so I have forgotten a lot of the basics...I know pretty sad. LOL! I just don't want to drown them when it comes down to hatching time ya know.
