humidity in R-Com
#1
I have been hatching the past few years in an R-Com 20.  For humidity I have always set mine at 35% for the first 18 days increasing it gradually to 58% once eggs are externally pipped.   Do any of you hatch at a higher humidity that this ?
I never make the same mistake twice. I do it at least five or six times, just to make sure !

I've always jacked it up as high as I can manage - generally 65% as trying to go higher means my Brinsea auto humidity pump ends up dripping continuously and would drown everything.
I've just converted my Maino to automatic humidity so need to check what I can achieve with that. Planning to hatch soon :-)

Sorry cant help. I remember some people (Eggybred?) used to hatch dry successfully. Never quite sure how she managed it. This is why I only use broodies Big Grin
It never worries me when I get a little lost, all I do is change where I'm going

I did mean 65% just for the hatch days of course! I think I used 40% for the bulk of the incubation.
