    If you are in your last 3 days for ducks, the humidity, according to Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks, says it should be 75%. I have also read it should be 86% for hatching, so go for an average and Good Luck!

    You should be fine with those conditions.
    Fret not, dear hatcherist, for you are proceeding nicely.
