    I have a brinsea 190 and have my first ever duck eggs going into lockdown today. I have a humidity pump and have filled the internal tray with water. I set the incubator to raise humidity to 70%, but it will not get over 60%. I do not have any other eggs in there right now, so that is not a concern. Will duck eggs hatch at 60%?
