    We, as duck lovers and hatchers, have seen our fair share of chicken incubator play-by-plays. I figured it's time for us to have one for our ducks! I did my research and used a chicken calendar template to customize it for our ducks. Feel free to save it, share it, print it off and pass it along! [​IMG]

    Very cool. I use my ducks as incubators but those that use incubators would benefit by this.. Thanks for posting. [​IMG]

    Hubby has mallards he is trying to incubate in DIY incubator but, we were told that humidity had to be 65%, so now I'm confused

    Just a quick tip that you may or may not know: use a foam cooler for the incubator it helps you regulate temp and humidity pretty easily!

    Yes, he built one quickly out of a Omaha steak cooler and I'm actually able to control the humidity and temps better in that, then I can in my $139 pro series. If I didn't have silkie eggs in my pro series, I would take it back.
