What is the correct humidity level for hatching Call duck eggs? I am a little confused.

I'm going to be putting eggs in the incubator pretty soon. Is the correct tempeture 99.5 ? I have a still-air styrfoam incubator.

I'd start out with your humidity at 45%-55%, but watching your air cells and adjusting humidity and/or drying rate accordingly is more important than hard numbers, because those numbers can change from hatch to hatch.

very true.
I run mine at the higher end 55% or so, and bump it up a good bit the last 3-4 days, but that's just what works here and in my incubators.
yes 99.5 is correct if you are using a forced air model, touch higher for still air, but I highly recommend forced air incubators.
