    Do I stop rotating it, I have 2 eggs and one egg was put in a day earlier then the other. I found out today that the first one I put in has a little pip in it already, but it's only the 25th day. I took it off the turner, but do I keep rotating it by hand? Also how often do I do it by hand... this is my first time and I'm really nervous. Thank you to anyone who helps me

    G’Day from down under mstark03 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Unfortunately I have no experience with duck eggs or incubators. However, if you post your query in the Duck Forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks or the Emergencies thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures you will hopefully get a quick response.

    Lots of friendly and very helpful folks on BYC so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures about our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
