Weigh the eggs is your best option if you google you will see some sites explaining how it's done.
If you weigh 10 eggs at a time normal kitchen scales should be fine.

Denis, thanks, reading up on that now..... has led me to stumble upon yet another question though, sorry guys.
Ventilation. Could not enough ventilation cause this problem?
Im finding a few of the links ive found are saying that not enough ventilation will impact on humidity.
Reason im wondering about the ventilation is because the humidity readings ive been getting seem to be about right according to posts here, brinsea etc but end result indicates humidity too high.

Yes need to have ventilation. You could run it at same water as before but with more ventilation would bring humidity down a bit.

I didnt explain what I meant very well sorry.
I have vent holes but not sure if enough.
Would inadequate ventilation cause a small air sac the same as too high humidity?
Sorry, im mentally pulling my incubator apart trying to find anything that could be the problem.
