    I have hatched chicken eggs before and am trying Mallard duck eggs this time. I have tried to research the specifics but there are some many different ranges for the temp and humidity... Could someone please tell me...

    -what temp should I keep the incubator at?
    -what humidity should I keep the incubator at?
    -do I increase the humidity the last few days?
    -on what day should the eggs stop being turned?
    - should the eggs be misted once a day?
    -how many days before they hatch?
    -do the smaller end of the eggs remain down just like chicken eggs?

    thank you in advance for your help!
