    I'm incubating duck eggs for the first time. Everything said to make sure the humidity is high, well being in Tennessee, that means 90%. Finally found out that high humidity is apparently 75%. I had about a week left. I tried to drop the humidity. But once again, being in Tennessee that's hard. They are hatching about 3 days earlier than I expected. That could be they were just farther along than I initially realized. Now I'm paranoid about them being "sticky". What do I look for? How long before I help? Thanks everyone!

    For everyone to see how "sticky" eggs end up looking.
