I'm incubating 4 duck eggs and I'm not sure if lockdown is day 18 or 25? also, what is the temp and humidity? I don't know why I am having such a hard time finding this online but I am now more confused than before because I've read so many different things. Thanks!

Day 25! Duck eggs take 4 weeks. Unless they are Muscovie ducks, they need longer.
Temperature 37.5 degrees celcius and relative humidity 40-45%. In lockdown 65-70%. And they also need to be misted and aired. I took my eggs out of the incubator on day 5 for five minutes and add a minute every next day until I reached 15 minutes. But from what I understood the humidity and airing isn't as strict as the temperature.

What breed are they? Good luck!
