    Welcome to the forum! [​IMG]

    Incubating can be really fun and frustrating.
    Ducks and chickens have different incubating requirements. The ducks take a week longer to hatch, and require higher humidity.

    It is an interesting incubator you have, what is it made from?

    Hey,

    it's a propogator tray for plants, I made a hole for the light and some holes on the sides for water tubes to fill the water trays without letting the heat out!

    here's my video on the incuabator: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bl4M2iH-cS4

    the
    temp and humidity is right, the ducks were layed 7 days before the chickens.

    1 WEEK TO GO!
