    It's suppose to be around 60-65, however I can never keep mine that high. Mine usually stays around 45 and they do just fine.

    You should be okay , once the egg opens up and the chick is free your humidity should go up from the moisture that is inside the egg .Unless you have a large incubator the humidity will be good ,you could add to it with a increase in water or a damp sponge ?but I'd watch the egg to see if it is breaking through and then keep a eye on it .
