    Hi, I'm incubating khaki campbell eggs and now I'm wondering if I've done things right or wrong? All the info I've gleaned from the internet says to incubate at 55% RH so thats what I did.....until I read a magazine saying that they won't hatch when they've had this high a humidity!!!! Please can somebody help me - I;ve dropped it to 45% till lockdown but am distraught now....any advice please?

    They say not to believe everything you read, so I'm going to give you a RH, that I read[​IMG]
    It did come from a hatching manual that I trust, if that makes any difference -- 51 -56 RH for duck eggs

    Thank you so much....don't feel so bad now......especially as I've checked the air cells and they look the right size. I've successfully hatched chickens but this is my first time with ducks so guess I'm panicking a bit. Thanks again and fingers crossed for some little ducklings this week [​IMG]
