    I would like to know too because I just put ducks eggs in. Someone told me it should be high, and my bator is resting on the high side of OK for chickens (I have chicken eggs in there too). I have the Brinsea, so the humidity stays consistent.

    well, i suggest 80% for duck since my duck stick to shell when i use 70%.

    simply use sponge wet with warm water, if still not high enough, use cloth and wet it using warm water. beware of temp spike due to warm water.
