My neighbors brought over 7 duck eggs, they wanted to know if they would hatch or if they were no good. Well I have never hatched out a duck. First I candled them, 2 out of the seven were absolutely no good. You could see mold in the eggs. The other 5 I can see movement, I have them in my extra incubator, I have no clue what the temp needs to be or what the humidity needs to be. One thing I do know is the humidity needs to be higher then a chick. I usually have my temp for chickens at 99 to 101, I usually have the humidity at 50 to 55 except lockdown then I put it up to 65-70. What do I need to do for these duck eggs??? I don't know what kind of duck they are but the eggs are a light blue or a green. how am I going to know when lockdown is and what do I need to do for Lockdown, or do duck eggs even go into lockdown? Any information you can give me would be GREAT....
