    I try to keep mine down below 75% (65% to 70%) when I put my eggs in lock down. You should be ok.

    Quote:It's a very cheap one I'm not even sure it has a name. I have a hover bator but that has eggs In it that were just put in. So I can't put these because these are suppose to be hatching in the next 3 days the humidity now is 77 the temp is 99.3
