    I have searched on the net to try my hand at hatching duck eggs for the first time. I have found the temp, but the humidity seems to be in question. The sites I`ve found range humidity from 55% to 65% to 86% so which is right. I`m using a 1588 incubator with turner and fan.

    60%, through 70% is a good number.

    Good luck!
