    My ducks have been internally pipping for 21 hours. What should I expect now? It's been a year since I have incubated ducks and I don't wanna mess up.:idunno 20190516_151444.jpg

    Ducks & Waterfowl Take Forever To Hatch As Long As Your Humidity If Fine You Should Expect An External Pip Soon...

    It is good. 98.5 and 75. I plan on upping the humidity once they externally pip. 2 are resting 4 are bumping. It always freaks me out when they rest. I remember that!

    Your Temp Should Be 99.5 Or If Using A Still Air Is I Think is 101 Degrees

    3 external pips last night. All are moving. I have 2 small incubators for hatching. They both have air holes in the top. I poked a screw through the holes and made a tiny airhole in the top of the eggs that have not externally pipped yet so they would not run out of air. They are chirping. :love
