    Should I get the humidity at 60% the day of the hatch or on day 18 when lockdown starts and keep it at 60 for the hatch. Thanks in advance. Today is day 18 I'm excited I've only hatched quail before.

    You want to bump the humidity up at lockdown :) If you didn't yet, don't panic, it won't hurt anything, just go ahead and bump it up now.
