    That's a good chart, but I would change the percentages of humidity on chicken eggs the last three days to more like 70-75%. In the 80's is a bit high, IMO, for chickens. Maybe it would work with waterfowl.

    Are we not suppose to stop turning chicken eggs for the last 3 days?

    Yes, Mareloo, they say we shouldn't turn the eggs on or just after Day 18.
