    I just bought 14 scovie eggs, and I'm wondering if anyone has any hatching tips. I've hatched out two sets of chickies, but no ducks yet. I have a genesis 1588, it's been sitting at about 99.7 and about 60% humidity. Someone suggested misting them once a day as well. I have them in a turner, and just put them in yesterday. They guy I got them from said fertility wasn't that great--he set fifteen eggs and six were fertile. I really want some to hatch for me!

    Thanks!

    Sorry, can't help w/the incubator but just know that Scovie eggs take 35 days to hatch or even a few more so patience is must with those babies. [​IMG] Good luck!
