    I have seven duck eggs in mine right now. This is it's first hatch, but it holds temperature extremely well and all seven of the eggs are kicking. Can't wait till the 15th!

    I don't have one but I'd desperately like one as soon as I can find either a) Cheep one on ebay or online somewhere that will ship to Australia or b) I can find a reasonable "local" seller.

    You will want to leave your ducklings in the bator at the correct humidity and temp for one day after they hatch or until completely dry and fluffy.

    Make sure your brooder is set to the same temp as your bator for about a week so they don't get too much shock while entering the world.
