    if your readings are not accurate then I would suggest that you look for condensation, if there is then ventilate for a minute and wipe off the condensation. They can only suffocate if they pip. Candle the airsack and if you see something grey or anything at all in the airsack it has been broken into. Very carefully poke a hole in it. Alot of call duck breeders do this as call duckling are one of the hardest to hatch! If there is no pip in the air sack then put it back and reduce the humidity just as was mentioned above.
