Different Date Duck Eggs in one incubator

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have one duck egg sharing an incubator with 9 other duck eggs that are 16 days behind. On lock down should I move my single egg to the side of the turner and hope that the other eggs will be ok and carry on turning? I can put my single egg for hatching in a small bowl to the edge. I don't know what breed it is. Do I stop turning on day 25?

I do staggered hatches all the time but I use a separate incubator for hatching. I don't hatch in my incubating incubators because I like to keep them clean so they just keep running. I schedule hatches 2 to 4 days apart to allow time to clean and reset the hatching incubator for the next hatch. I hatch at a slightly lower temperature and higher humidity so it would be hard to stagger hatches in a single incubator.
