I had a HUGE problem with humidity. I ended up buying 2 humidifiers and a fog maching before I found a good solution. Here is what I suggest:
Drape a light cloth over the back and sides (I used a skirt, the kind you can buy at the beach, it has long tie ups attached and makes it easy to get in the right position, and keep it there)
Get a warmmist humidifier and a lamp timer and also look in the duct section of a hardware store for something that will sit on top and aim the air into the cage. I got a 5-3" adapter and a 3" elbow.
If your house is dry keep the humidifier on for a few hours and off for a half hour. You should try and find one that has a control to set the ammount of mist. You can keep it set at about halfway.
If your house is not so dry, have it on for a half hour every few hours and keep it set on the wettest setting.
Make sure you keep the opening of the humdifier a few inches away from the cage, as the mist is really hot at first and may burn. If it is aimed at the cage (like with an elbow) than it will go right in, and travel up, and keep it nice and humid.
Good luck! Sorry this was so long. It took me a while to find something that worked! lol
