    Hatching a mini silver appleyard. I have read that humidity should be 65% until first pip, then up to 80%, then down to 70% after the duckling is completely hatched. Is this what everyone follows, or do you have your own figures?

    I keep mine at 55%-65% during incubation and 75%-85% during the hatch. I weigh the eggs to monitor weight loss and use that as somewhat of a guide.
