Im planning setting quite a few batches this year but i had really really bad hatch rates last year and i think it was my humidity. There is so much conflicting information on the net about what humiditys i should use on different birds so i was wondering what works for you guys at different times of the year. Birds im thinking of are;
hens(orpingtons),
ducks(indian runners, white campbells, saxony, call ducks, muscovys and crosses maybe)
geese(embden and toulouse if i can get hold of some)
turkeys(bronze)
and finally quail(cortunix)

any info on incubating this lot would be helpfull thanks :)

55-65% as a general rule should do you just fine. A little low during incubation shouldnt be an issue but at hatch needs to be on the higher end. Ducks tend to do better with higher humidity than chickens or turkeys. 65-75 % is the desired rate. Hope this helps and you get better hatches.
