call duck incubating questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

hello there friends,

i haven't ordered any call duck eggs yet, i just have a few ​(a lot)  ​questions about incubating so they have the best chance possible:

 

1: what humidity do you guys recommend? from what i have read its around 65% but a lot of people are also saying 40%, 80% ect. so im not sure which.

 

2: what temperature is the best? i mostly see 99.5 F but some people said 100 so also not sure

 

 

3: how often should i roll/turn them over, every hour? 3 times a day? 5 times?

 

 

4: i read due to there small beaks that have trouble hatching, when should i step in to help if this is to happen? or should i let natural selection do its thing?

 

 

6. if there shipped when do i count the days down, like if i get them and there say, 5 days old do they have 21 days left till they hatch? or do i start counting days down when i put them in the incubator?

 

 

7:  what should i do if they have a detached air pocket? how can i undetach it?

 

also i have a brinsea mini advance incubator ive had great success with it

 

thanks in advance :)
