    Locked-down 6 runner duck eggs at 5:30pm. Humidity is at 47%. The room is at 35%. I have hatched out chickens at this % but understand that ducks need to be higher. I have 2 sponges and 2 wet washclothes in the incubator (homemade) I put a big jug of water next to the floor vent. Any other suggestions????

    p.s. all of the eggs have been jiggling around on & off all day. I don't want to kill them............ [​IMG]

    Nevermind.....................figured it out. Dumb hydrometer not accurate. [​IMG]
