    I'm on day 5 with 25 duck eggs in the bator. This is my first hatch. I'm set at 95.5 temp and 55 percent humidity. Am I on the right track or should I change the temp and humidity. I'm using an RCom20 incubator and all settings are holding study. Any suggestions will be much needed and appreciated.

    Looks like you are on the right track to me.

    Good luck with your hatch.

    I think your temperatures a bit low. 99 F is more commonly used.

    If you eggs are growing fine, your thermometer might be off. I'm very reluctant to touch the controls on the incubator if the eggs are doing fine. It's so hard to get it stabilized again.
