From what I have read, ducks are similar to chickens in hatching, right? They need about the same temperature and humidity, and need to be turned three times a day. i think it will take about 28 more days until hatching, the farmer said. I don't really trust him though because he didn't even know what breed they were. I don't really know how long they should be incubated for... (Help!) When do I stop turning and when should I expect hatching?
This is the incubator:
Should I take out the holder and put a towel down, laying the eggs on their sides even though they have been incubating facing up and down like that for a week? When I stop turning them should I do it then? I hand turn them, so far I have just been flipping them over three times a day- is this right?
Please help, I really appreciate it!!
