    I have 14 call duck eggs in my incubator and I have them in a egg turner is that ok it turns 6 times a day. I read some people say they should lay on the side and others say egg turners are the best. HELP

    Egg turners are to make it easier, I think an egg turner is fine. Turning them by hand can cause more problems, say you turn them and drop one or something... that would not be good. Depends on how careful you think you are! [​IMG]

    I hand turn my Call eggs and all Duck eggs only 3 times a day and hatch on their sides...Excellent hatches..100% hatch rate so far...
