    I'm currently incubating some Mallard Bantam duck eggs and have been doing so for 18 days, my incubator has a temperature of 37.5c and a humidity of 55%, but I'm not sure what to change the humidity/ temperature to, during lockdown and when I should start lockdown, as it is my first time hatching waterfowl.

    The temperature doesn't change, in lockdown the humidity should go up to about 70% and lockdown should start at day 25 :) good luck :)
