Ok today i put my 45 hen eggs in with my 3 duck eggs which have been developing nicely i want them to hatch on the same day so i decided to put the duck eggs in a week earlier, so the humidity has been around 50- 60 which i read is ok for duck eggs, but when i put my hen eggs in, i couldn't really get it down, i tried putting in less water, but that didn't work, so i thought it may be to high for them, so i was wondering is it to late to do a dry hatch, I've never done this before so if u have any ideas or tips please help thanks :)

Not too late for a dry incubation. Let the water in the incubator evaporate candle again in 10 days to see how big the the air sacs are. If they're looking large add water again if not just add some at hatching.
