    Should around 60%-70% for lockdown. I don't really measure as I use the dry hatch method most of the time.

    I have better hatches personally with 30-40% humidity day 1-18.
    The first few times I hatched chicks I also did the recommended humidity only to have bad results. I tried lowering the humidity throughout the whole incubation period, and results have been better.
    How do your air cells look?
    I can't really see from the pic you posted.
    If you are on day 20, so you are going to have to be patient.
