    Default Humidity in incubator?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So my humidity in my incubator is 99% but my eggs are STILL shriveling up/drying up. I might be judging it too fast but there is so much water in there and the eggs arenít plumping back up. Even if the humidity gauge is wrong it still should be very humid. I cranked up the heat a few degrees just to see it it would help more of the water get into the air. I donít know what to do!

    What kind of humidity gauge are you using?

    What kind of incubator are you using?

    What kind of container are the eggs in? egg tray? ventilation holes?

    What kind of incubation medium are you using?

    How long ago were the eggs hatched? when did they start shriveling up?

    Have you candled them?

    It’s a digital temp/ humidity gauge

    I’m using a hovabator

    The eggs are in a Tupperware container with the lid slightly off (I wasn’t expecting eggs yet whoops)

    Hatchrite I think it’s called? Orange bag

    The eggs were layed Tuesday, so about 4 days ago. When I found them they were slightly dented but they’ve gotten worse since I put them in

    I’ve quickly candled the one that was less shriveled up, I couldn’t tell much but I also had to candle them very quickly, I’m bringing a normal flashlight Monday, I had to use a phone light

    I hear the hatchrite can be tricky, did you add any additional water? are the eggs layin right in the hatchrite?

    You might carefully add a little more water but not too much you dont want the eggs touching the water and put the lid on the container.

    What are your temps at i forgot to ask.

    Ok, well the only thing I can think of would be to seal the container that will def keep the humidity in.
