    I am attemptimg to hatch muscovy duck eggs and I have read lots of site that say:
    Set the temperature at 37.5°C (99.5°F) and relative humidity at 55% (84.5°F on wet bulb thermometer).
    What is a wet bulb?
    Is the humidity 55% or 84.5%?

    I got my humidity a little higher throughout incubation. I got it somewhere around 60-63%
    Do you incubate in a still air or fan?
    What day are you on? I got 14 scovy eggs myself on day 10.
