Everything is fine. Ducks do tend to hatch wetter than chicks so the humidity could rise a bit more as the hatch continues. Don't worry about it.

If they're hatching why would you think you might be doing something wrong? Hatching is what you wanted them to do isn't it?

Cara, ducks and geese take much higher humidity than chickens. They are waterfowl. My geese needed 85% humidity and I think could have gone a bit higher.
