    Hi all,
    I have duckling that partially hatched but the yolk sac isn't fully absorbed. Mom hatched these babies in the barn. I have it in the incubator loosely wrapped in a moist cloth. It's lower half is still in the shell. What temp and humidity should I keep the incubator at? I'm in SE Colorado and the humidity is really fluctuating.

    The temp in the incubator is fluctuating between 99-102 and humidity is 56% right now.
