I have recently been awarded a grant to purchase an incubator and 12 mallard duck eggs to incubate and raise in my classroom as a hands on experience for my students. The incubator purchased was the top hatch incubator from the carolina biological supply. I have read both good things and bad about this incubator. If any one has any suggestions as to the best way to work this incubator or things I should watch out for upon embarking on this adventure, I would truly appreciate it. I have a place for the ducks to go when we are through, A small room with a constant temperature to place the incubator, and I have been reading everything I can get my hands on about hatching and raising ducks. Some of the things I'm wondering about is imprinting...if they imprint on myself or a student are the ducks going to be ruined for life? Any little hints would be appreciated. The eggs/incubator could be arriving any time in the next 3 weeks. Thanks for your help.
