    Would any onelike to reccomend a good incubator for duck eggs?

    After I find a way to keep them away from the chickens I would like to start incubating some of them.

    I have used my cheap Little Giant for ducks, chicken, quail, pheasant, guinea. I don't think the incubator makes much of a difference really.

    As long as the incubator can hold your eggs, it will work. You just adjust the temp, humidity and time for whatever species you are hatching. I've have excellent luck with chicken, duck, and turkey with my Brinsea Eco 20. [​IMG]

    If you are looking at getting one with an automatic turner- consider getting one that roll tuns them as many people do find that duck eggs do much better laying on their sides rather than upright.
