Morning Stella, I thought the hydrometer could be faulty too so I tested and added another one and put it at the other end of the box. They read about the same. I tweaked a couple of things last night and the humidity has risen to about 63% but I don't know if that's good enough or is stable...

Ah! My incubator is still empty but with 3 massive sponges in there and condensation on the walls I'm still not even hitting 60%! I can't think what I'm doing wrong. I even did the salt in a bottle cap test to check my hydrometer and it's fine! :-( I think poor Barney is crossing her legs until she knows everything is ready! Seriously considering buying a hovabator, would I still get a humidity issue with one of those???

Hi, sorry for the delayed response, I was away for the weekend. Science clearly isn't my strong point either! I have replaced the small sponge (lol by bad) with one of those big car wash sponges so it fills the container and protrudes above it. This morning the temperature was at 31 and the humidity was 64% however this had dropped down from 66%. I assume I can always add another container and sponge to raise it further?

Thank you all for your help so far I really appreciate it! XX

I've now added the bricks so hopefully this will help. The heat mat is the ProRep 10 x 12 inch, 13 watt and was also just about the right size to fit in the box. It's been reaching 31/32 without a problem so far. The picture is the incubator.Attached File  20150529_185009.jpg   34.32KB   0 downloads
