Hello

Have you wet the vermicullite then to get the humidity at 80%,my humidity is at 80% at the moment i just open the lid for a few more seconds it also allows air exchange,i try to aim around the 70-75% as i had four little gorgeous babies keeping at this humidity and temps around 31 and 32,best of luck

Hello

dont worry,i have had a look,the one that she was demonstrating said it had a plus and a minus to set settings,does yours?,,if there's no settings to alter on yours just open the door to allow air exchange for a few seconds,some days i have had to open the lid a few times in one day especially when temps have dropped down and i have had to top back up with water.

There should be ventilation holes in all incubators to allow good oxygen exchange within the egg.
