    rotate at least 3 times a day

    Humidity is not my specialty.... lol, someone else will let you know.
    But sounds like your % is fine , you just want it higher at the time of hatch

    Turn 3 times a day

    You need to up the humidity for the last three days

    You should try and get your humidity lower. For most areas 35% for the first 18 days is good. Raise it to 65-70% for the last 3 days.
