Just started my new incubation of 1 1/2 dozen muscovys and half dozen mutt duck eggs 8 silkie eggs and 6 easter egger eggs on saturday, I was told to get a better hatch rate I could Mist the duck eggs. When do I start this? right from beginning of incubation or I read somewhere after day 10? also.. I have 1 bantam egg in there that was a Test for fertility I put about 2 weeks ago in there and by the time I checked it was moving and didnt want to take it out.. its still alive and really active from what I can see, It should be due this coming thursday or friday. If I let it hatch in the incubator and its successfull without a full boost of humidity, Will that one egg cause bacteria to grow by the time my ducks and silkies hatch and kill them? Will it be alright to let it stay in? also temperature problem!!!! I have 2 of the temp/hum therms from walmarts thats about $6 each in the incubataor. side my side toward the top practically under the lil knob it claims 100.8 on one and 102.0 on the other. Who do I listen to??? How do i know which is right? and if i put them down on the egg racks it says like 98.8 or 99.7 in some places, I have a LG. does it make THAT big a difference between places of less then a inch of height?
