    OK I just found out that my current huidity is too low for duck eggs. It is 65-70%. I am cureent ly trying to raise it to a higher % with little sucess. What should I do to increase humidity and could my duck still hatch and be ok? One is rocking like crazy...not piping though.

    I have always put a warm wet sponge or two in the bator with the eggs and sometimes misted through the vent hole to keep the humidity where it needs to be. Hope that helps..[​IMG] Just keep in mind that they will naturally raise the humidity when they start hatching as well..just like chicks do.
