As the title says what is the humidity for ducks? This is for day 1-24. Okay some websites say to have it higher than chicken egg humidity. Then people on this website say to have it lower than chicken eggs. What is it? Please help. I'm on day two.

I got so much conflicting information when I looked into this that I decided to hatch duck eggs the same as I do chicken eggs, 45% humidity until lockdown, when I bumped it to around 65%. I got a 100% hatch :) So I know what works for me!

I used Storeys guide to duck humidity suggestions....for some reason...I found that I got better hatches with less....30-40 %... and 60 at hatch... I do wash my eggs...
