I'm in Dallas.
I read that you hold the chicken so its head is down and it is supposed to help it throw up

ok skip the turkey eggs, I would like to try 3 duck eggs. Let me know how much, I usually don't have cash on me.

I wasn't trying to sound like one either, your hatch rate was definitely better than mine for sure!

Seems ours is always pretty high here at home, and I do believe that my hatching bator and it's varying temps are what caused my poor hatch rate.
anyway, hope I didn't come off that way either, just responding to what I saw as something that looked off to me. I do believe it was GAM who posted that about water fowl vs chicks for humidity percentages
Papa I can't find the post again but after checking the hygrometer it should read 78%? Seeing if the ole brain remembers.
