    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    Thats what the duck incubation sites say, but my call ducks hatched fine using the same humidity as chickens. Not sure about having the humidity that high?

    It's the Brower TH, dry bulb I guess. But stupid me put my Pekin eggs in with some of my chicken eggs so now I'm starting to flip out over what to do come day 18 for the chicks. Then I just read about this humidity thing [​IMG]

    My ducks will be on day 10 tomorrow and they're all boppin around when I candled. Should I take my chicken eggs out? My duck eggs are priority. Stupid me got overly excited when I got my bator and just started throwing eggs in there [​IMG] (me smacking myself)

    Suggestions?
