    I have 4 rouens, and only one is a girl. I need to get more girls, since it is almost impossible to catch the other drakes. I would prefer eggs, for I don't want a lot of ducklings. Let me know!! I'm also interested in button quail eggs, but also not many of these. <edit> I have button eggs, Thanks!! Just need the ducks.

    Barnyard has button quail [​IMG] Reasonably priced too. Mine are due to hatch in 2 days.

    I wouldn't try doing duck eggs in the same incubator as quail eggs.

    Nope.....duck eggs take longer and need more humidity as a rule.

    Quote:Well, my bator is full right now anyway. Maybe I can find someone that has rouens for the spring time? (Hopefully I will get something to hatch out of there!) So with ducks, should you do them by theirselves completely?

    I would. It just isn't the best idea to mix different kinds of eggs when you're incubating......at least I don't think it is if you want to get the best possible results.
