    Hey guys,
    I have just been given a Brinsea Octagon 10 incubator.

    I have washed my duck eggs and placed them in ( I think pointed side down.. it was hard to tell as eggs were round)

    It is making a clicking noise. I was wondering if this is normal? Does anyone have this incubator?

    Hi Jessica !

    Yes the pointed side down
    I do not have this incubator but the clicking noise maybe is from thermostat relay and is normal

  3. If you cant tell which side is the point. Try candling to see where the air pocket is.
