    Putting 30 duck eggs in the incubator for someone tomorrow. Never have done ducks before, any advice for a first timer?
    Thank you

    The first time is always nerve-wracking! Make sure your incubator has been running for 24 hours beforehand and is holding the temp steady. Other than that, just try to keep a nice stable humidity. Also, you can pop on over to the thread named 'Thread formerly known as Hatch day is today' - a lot of us in there hatch ducks and there are plenty of people with more experience than me that can help you out!
