    SO, i a guessing as there is a lot of info missing

    It would help if we knew what bator, what are you using as a humidity gage, etc.

    I would think that everything you are doing will result in a good hatch.

    I do not run humidity up as high as I see posted on here, and have great hatches, including ducklings.

    You might try blocking some holes, or closing some vents a bit if your bator allows.



    Good luck...............
