I just lockdowned stopped the cradle, added two troughs of water and watched the humidity rise.........pre lockdown. Humidity was 30 degrees. 12 hours later its risen to 52 degrees.......shouldn't it be higher than that? Should I add a sponge maybe? What temps do everyone else aim for?

I dont know what kind of gauge your using but mine does % not degrees. I raise mine to between 65 and 70 % for chicks during lockdown.
As for temp I aim for 99 - 100 degrees.

I have found that filling the troughs never worked. Adding a wet washcloth always does it. I like my humidity to be about 70%.
Thanks. Will add to it
Thanks to all for your replays
