    This is our first time hatching duck eggs. First question Can we put ducks & chickens in the same incuabtor? I figure the temp is the same as chickens 99.5 but the humidity I cannot remember. They sit for 28 days turning the eggs twice a day. Any other help would be greatly appriciated. Thank you.[​IMG][​IMG]

    It not ideal because the humidity required for ducks is higher than the humidity for chickens. I have done it, but its risky
