    You nearly had it...scovies take 35 days to hatch- so stop turning on day 32...but for the mallard derived ducks you had it right at 28 days - stop turning day 25.

    Dont forget...day one isnt when you put them in the bator...Day one starts when they have reached the right temp at the core of the egg which is why you dont count that first day.

    Oh..and by the way..in my book..the only dumb question is the one someone never asks.
