I am ready for duck eggs next month. Are they like chickens or does the humidity have to be higher?
Humidity needs to be higher and they will take longer to incubate.
How many days and what should the humidity be at? Thank you for the quick responce
26-28 days depending upon your duck breed.
Temp 99.5 F.
Oh and you're welcome. I just happened to be reading new posts at the moment.
Oh, the humidity isn't by %, it's by the wet bulb temp. So I guess it is similar to chicken incubation?
ok. i am using a hygrometer for the humidity. I am getting cayuga duck eggs. Do I stop the turner at 3 days before hatch as well? Sorry for all the questions
Unless you hatch Muscovy ducks - then it is 35 to 37 days until they hatch.
Wow! Thats a long time. I guess I can find something to do instead of having my face glued to the bator for that long
No duck eggs take between 26 and 28 days.
Yes, stop the turning at least 2 days before hatching. 3 days is better, in case they are early.
