Opening Incubator in Lockdown

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi all. I am new to this forum and apologies if it has been discussed previously but I had 2 ducklings hatch on the first day of lockdown.  The others had pipped early yesterday morning (or night before last).  Two had attempted their hatch yesterday evening but are still not out.  The other two have now started chipping away more at the egg.  I want to get my 2 ducklings out (been in there 24hours and are now dry/fluffy) but I am concerned that the others will be shrink wrapped by drop in humidity.  Humidity is currently 70%.  Any tips/suggestions?  This is my first time hatching ducklings. Thanks in advance. They are Swedish ducks.

It's ok during lockdown to open the incubator once a day to remove all dry ducklings. Just do it quickly and get the cover back on.
