    What kind of incubator do you have??? It makes a difference if it is still air... or if there is a fan.

    My humidity is set at 65 and then I increase it to 75 the last three days, but I have a fan. I would go to the incubation title on this site there are people on that site that use still air incubators. I have not been very successful with that type, but some people have. Make sure you say that you are hatching duck eggs instead of chicken. You can also do a search for hatching duck eggs, with still air incubator. Here is a link below that might be helpful. Good Luck. I know that some put sponges in incubator at the end to raise humidity.
