We recently inherited 9 duck eggs from my daughters school. Mama was being played with by the boys, and girls were protecting her. Principal WS calling dog pound, so I said I have a pond and two ducks already, I'll take them. We brought them home, two days later mama took off. So, we built an incubated, and here we are. 15 days in, and I can't tell what I'm looking at. We. Lost two already, they smelled rotten and looked worse! My temp is approx 95-100, and humidity is approx 65-75℅, but fluctuates in between... Here's out pics.[IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG]

15 days app. In that homemade incubator. The two days prior, we put in a plastic crate, on a heating pad with bath rug on top. And a bowl of water also. We sprayed them every few hours .
