    I have 3 muscovy duck eggs (fertile) in my incubator on day 11, but I think I need a bit more information for the next few days. I need to know what humidity it should be at now and when to higher the humidity and what it should be at.

    I will also need to know when to stop turning the eggs, thank you

    Muscovies take roughly 35 days total. I incubate at 45-50% and raise the humidity to 65-75% at hatch. I stop turning 3 days before they are due to hatch.
