    I have read many different things and would like your opinion. What temp and humidity do you set your eggs at? When they go on lock down what do you increase it too? I am going to try and hatch some of my own duck eggs.
    Thank you

    I have hatched duck eggs before. I go same temp as chicken eggs, but with more humidity- don't spray', though. I like dry hatch in home made incubator for chickens. if I was to hatch ducks which I plan to after these eggs of mine hatch, I will go with 101 temp(still air) and not "dry hatch" but just put a cup of water in my bator, then more at lock down.

    I have a small bator, so If I don't have tons of water I will be fine.
