    I've had my best success at having their temperature about 99.5-101 throughout. They hatch after 28 days, unless they are muscovies, therefore; you should stop turning your eggs at 25 days. From day 1 to 25 I have my humidity at about 60% and the remaining three days, I push it up to 70-80%....
