 Eggs sweating too early????

Hi, I had first clutch laid on Sep 1 and second exactly three weeks later. Temps have remained at 83-85 with humidity stuck at 88 on both. The past two days, the eggs have been sweating, the first clutch more than the second. What is going on??????

Are you ventilating the egg container at all?
2 holes ( one on each end is all you need ...) about the size of a small straw ...not in the lid ...but the container itself above the soil / substrate line

Are you getting condensation on the lid ? If so it is acting like a terrarium and raining on the eggs...88% humidity is a bit high ..how do you measure that ? I would crack the lid and place it diagonally ever so little to allow some moisture to escape. get the humidity down to 75-80%
