    Today my aunt brought me over 13 Indian Runner eggs in hopes I can incubate them.(They go back to her after hatching) Is there some sort of tutorial on here that gives step by step instructions for incubating duck eggs?
    I did a search and was able to find some info. I do know they require higher humidity, so dont know if "dry incubating" is possible as it is with chicken eggs. I do have an extra incubator, right now I am letting the eggs settle til morning and then putting them in the incubator.

    Oh, also these eggs are a bit dirty, would cleaning them off with a wire brush be okay or would it remove the bloom??
