    My new hovabactor incubator with forced air fan and egg turner arrived Saturday. It was quickly put at temp and held nicely for 12 hrs. I loaded it with 10 runner eggs. . and am waiting to meet my new quackers. . . Humidity keeps holding around 48-50% so I may need to add a bit more water?? I know it should be at 55% but if I add more water to another tray won't it go too high?

    Now that I've gone completely quackers. . . and spent several hours watching an incubator. . and even longer watching my adult quackers do weird things. . I think I've lost it. . I have gone quackers.

    Is there a cure? Any hope for me and mine? Or will I spend my life watching ducks climb the step steps to my back deck. . and have orgies in mud puddles?[​IMG]

    Lol welcome to my life, i find it when I watch my babies to closely I tend to have anxiety as I focus on EVERY SINGLE LITTLE THING THEY DO!!!! Ex. One of them gets up after sitting down for about 30 minutes taking a nap and starts limping a little, my mind - " OMG YOU HAVE BUBMBLE FOOT LET ME CHECK YOUR FEET AND THEN CUDDLE U!"

    Reality- their foot fell asleep


    And don't get me started about the incubators and hatching I literally like must imagine any little thing that could go wrong, but it always turns out okay
