    So I only got a few that are alive and I just want to make sure they are okay. I filled up the channels to get the humidity up to 70 right? I still turn them over 3 times a day? And does it matter where they placed. I could only place them on the edges becuz they'd roll. Please help I really need to make sure they are okay.

    I answered your pm but I'm not sure you got it. Are these on day 18 or day 25? You said day 18 in your pm but that's for chicken eggs. Ducks of most breeds lock down on day 25. In lockdown you do not turn the eggs, so you will not turn them any longer once you get to that point.
