    I am getting a dozen Cayuga duck eggs hopefully this week and I've never hatched duck eggs before.

    I'm setting up the bator now which is a still air,and calibrating my thermometers.

    Any advice or links to resources for a first time duck Hatcher? I've successfully hatched chicks many times, but I'm ready to try ducks!
    Thanks in advance!

    Oooh, yes, you want to know some of the waterfowl differences!

    Take a look at the Stickies - there are two hatching threads there.
