    My incubator has runner duck eggs that I put in yesterday at 1:00pm. The temp was originally 99 degrees but now is only 97. Will this mess up my eggs? How do I get the temp back up in my bator? Also what is the humidity supposed to be? This is my very first batch! HELP!!!

    your bator has a ajustment on it just turn it up a small amount until you reach 99.5 and your humidity should be around 40-50%.and no dropping to 97 should not have hurt your eggs.

    What kind of incubator is it? The eggs should be fine. My incubator tends to get a little colder at night and does fine. As for humidity you will often get different answers on this one. I don't have much experience with duck eggs so I'm not much help.
