    I have duck eggs in the incubator that were put in on August 28. They take 28 days so I should take them out of the turner on day 25 (Sept.22) and they should hatch on Day 28 (Sept. 25) Is that right....i'm only asking because i counted over it so many times and I always get a different answer.

    I got them from redhen in a contest....they are mixed
    Hens
    Blue Runner
    Rouen
    2 Magpies

    Drakes
    Crested Magpie
    Crested Blue Swedish

    I cant wait because not only will most of the ducklings be crested, they will have really interesting colors...what if a blue magpie hatches out??
