Hey there! I am currently incubating Indian Runner and Muscovy duck eggs. There are only eight of them but only seven are still alive and growing. I expected some mortalities though as ALL of them have ruptured air cells :( I was then given a link to a thread started by Pete55 (thanks pete!) and I was given hope :) I am incubating them in a carton and I didn't turn them or move them at all for the first 48 hours. I am now keep them at a slight angle and turn them 5 times a day (every 3 hours starting at 9am). They are growing very well and one of them is already moving! They are only on day 5 but I have high hopes for them. If you could leave your experiences with carton incubation and incubating eggs with ruptured air cells that would be amazing!
The Indian Runners are due to hatch on July 31st. The Muscovies are due on August 7th.
If you are incubating some eggs right now feel free to leave a post about it.
Have a wonderful summer,
