    Duck eggs require much higher humidity then pheasants.

    but what if you are doing dry incubation methods and spraying the duck eggs a couple times a day?

    I've never tried a dry incubation.It took me long enough to figure out how to get a good hatch on pheasant eggs so I am sticking to what works for me.

    Do you have your system written down somewhere?

    What works for me is 99.5 and 50% humidity,but humidity differs in all places.You have to see what works in your area.Of course your incubator has a lot to do with it also,but most important is your birds.If their happy they produce better.
