I'm incubating pheasant eggs in a Brinsea Octagon 20 incubator and would like clarification of the correct Relative Humidity. I understand that it should be slightly higher than for hen eggs, but I'm getting different figures from a variety of internet search results. Thanks, Brent

The common pheasant eggs can be incubate on a low humidity % 25-28% for the duration until last day, than increase to 40-45%

37.4 is to low and you risk getting crooked toes. 36.8c is better with 45% relative humidity.
