Humidity depends on a lot of factors.. smaller eggs usually require a touch more humidity than larger chicken eggs... Humidity is calculated by the size of aircell when you candle the eggs and you aadjust accordingly... Lets say you need to increase the size of aircell in your egg.. you would want lower humidity... higher humidity will keep it the same or slow the growth of air cell.   A good read would be this, http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-101

Welcome to Backyard chickens.   I think it will be best to ask on the  "quail /pheasants," threads - they may need different settings than chickens
