Misting duck eggs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi. My colleagues tried hatching khaki Campbell eggs last month. Out of 18 eggs only 2 hatched. We are trying again hoping for better success. I have read that they should be misted with warm water starting at day 10. Thoughts?

I've done both and have not seen any change in my hatch rate.

Incubator Cam is LIVE once again! (see the thread)

I tried misting and the ducklings ended up sticky, I am assuming due to too much humidity. We dry hatch in a still air but misting might help if you have a forced air incubator due to the fan making it drier.
