    Soon some ducks are hatching and I was wondering how high the humidity should be in the last 3 days. I have still air incubator

    It should be at least 65% for any bird (including your ducks.)

    Yes, at LEAST 65% for hatch. I run 70-75% at hatch, I open my bator during hatch so I run higher. I run 30-35% for incubation, many duck hatchers also run low humidity for ducks as well prior to lockdown.

    I meant 65%+ for the last three days. Before that it should be 35% - 45%.
    Good luck with your eggs!
