It's definitely a Rouen.

The Shire flock:

1 Pekin, 1 Cayuga, 1 Crested duck, 1 Rouen,  and three Mallard ducks

5 Black Australorp, 2 New Hampshire Reds, and 6 Red Sex-Link chickens

3 Rock Pigeons and 1 Archangel Pigeon

I know it's part Rouen, but it's not full Rouen. I'm talking about the one in front that is silver. I'm not sure what it's mixed with.

I seem to be recalling that someone recently got one of those on a hatching thread I participate in and hated it and ended up abandoning it halfway through and getting a Brinsea. Is the brand Magicfly by any chance?

Completely new at this I didn't even know the eggs needed turning which makes complete sense by the way....so I would have to keep turning them if it didn't...

I think that bator is meant to be tilted back and forth by propping up one side of its legs, but not sure...

Honestly, a cheap Hovabator 1602N from a feed store is probably your best bet... rolling the eggs back and forth by hand is actually best for duck eggs too...

Here's some more detailed info:

Only one of the eggs hatched in that detailed thread. Doesn't look like it's the best incubator. You may want to return it for something else.
