    Can someone get permission from Nifty to do a sticky here on hatching duck eggs and one on hatching guineas, etc.? The sticky on chicken eggs is very helpful for beginners but I am at a loss here for ducks or turkeys.

    Well, I don't know diddly about ducks or guinea's, but turkeys are just like chickens except they take about 3 more days to hatch. You also have to baby them a little more as they are pretty easy to kill as babies. I don't let the hens raise them either as they never do as good as when you brood them yourself.

    ducks are pretty easy to hatch my first try at ducks eggs was 100% hatch rate.

    they took about 30 days to hatch, you have to keep the humidity higher for them and mist the eggs once a day, trun 3 times a day by hand or use a turner.
