Two to three times if that in a hatch. I rarely candle them.i do speratically randomly.dont open on lock down unless a chick/ duck needs help or water/food or needs to be placed in the brooder coop.i have two incubators one is set for first 18 days the other one set for lock down.sept these hatch was confused because we had to many eggs going at one time and very speratically. Different times. Inside and outside. We wanted to test if the ducks could hatch chicken eggs and there own at the same time in different nesting areas and our usual batch in incubators. We wanted to see if we could confuse nature rules on genetic parental traits in chickens. Because incubaton is not natures natural solutions . Duck/ chicken mothers best. Then siragents then last possible incubators.post #8869 of 104383/23/16 at 12:46pmpost #8870 of 104383/23/16 at 1:09pmEggs like to be left alone and not touched very much. If you have to touch it to examine in distress wash hands. They like chick/duck noises.all the time.they do better with sponges aquirium tubing rocks penny's and little water containers. Lock down means don't open it unless you have to.
