    From what I've read, 65 or 70 percent is good. Maybe a wet paper towel would bring it up? Or even a couple of spritzes of distilled water...but I don't think you want to open the bator this late..do you have a hole you could poke something in?

    I cracked a duck egg near the pointy end and filled with water and put in the turner next to another egg.

    this is my first hatch I don't think i'm doing so good though. I came home from groceries and the little giant (which I now hate) was up to 112% so they are probably all dead [​IMG]

    I hatched my last batch at 55 to 60% and had my best hatch! Too high and they drown![​IMG]
