    I have some duck eggs in incubator now, and from what I have read, you have to have like 55 to 65% humidity. Last year one of my chickens hatched ducklings, so, I don't know if you really need that much of humidity. Also, duck eggs need more time to hatch. But if you will go to duck treat they will tell you more about it.
