    Have three duck eggs in an incubator for approximately 8 days. Today, I noticed that they have started to move. They were from an abandoned nest on our property so I don't how far along they were when we brought them in. Do I need to continue turning them or should I keep the incubator closed to maintain the humidity? Thanks in advance for the help.

    I did candle them and the air cell is up. Turned them this morning and when I checked on them earlier they were moving. Humidity is around 60%.

    If I don't see signs of hatching soon should I start turning the eggs again?
    Thanks

    No. They don't need it when they are that far developed. Just make sure they are at high humidity and there should be no issues
