Incubating Mandarin Duck eggs

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Any advice on incubating Mandarin duck eggs please? I hear they can be difficult!

I have some that I have just started in my incubator yesterday

Any tips would be greatly appreciated

 

Thanks

Steve

I've never incubated mandarin ducks, just wanted to bump the thread and flow the replies. Good luck with the hatch, and watch that humidity!

Thank you

I've been reading that Muscovy's are difficult also. Been reading that keeping humidity high may not be the right way but keeping them drier. Don't know what to do now

Hey Steve.  How are the Mandarin's coming along?  

 

We've had a good hatch, 7 eggs hatched, 1 that looks like it will hatch today, and one quitter (on day 20, I think).
