    My duck eggs are starting to wiggle in their shells.

    Should I turn the autoturner off? Should I raise the humidity?

    They are due on Thursday...

    This is my first hatch, I didn't expect to see wobbles. I thought something had bumped into the stand they were on but then another one weebled.A;

    I would. Usually they say to turn off the turners and/or take them out 3 days before, but if they are wobbling they might be turning to get in position now.

    Thank you.

    I turned the autoturner off and raised the humidity.

    Another egg started to wobble!

    Just because they are rocking doesn't mean they will hatch early, though. When I move chicken eggs to the hatcher on Day 18, there are always some rockers in there.
