    the 70 percent at lockdown seems fine.

    what humidity do you run during the incubation?

    I do thr the dry incubation. A long as I don't go below 20 percent I don't get overly conserned about it.

    then on lockdown raise to 70 to 80 percent.

    from your other posts to me sounds like your humidity is too high during incubation and the babies are drowning if they internal pip.

    also are you incubating with the small end down?
