It's been a long time since I've been on here. Well, they had some incubators on sale at TSC the other day when I was looking for a birthday present for my dad. So of course I couldn't resist! He really likes his present, and we want to try hatching a few ducklings. Our own ducks have never even tried sitting on their eggs. We're only getting 3 eggs a day at the most right now, and we don't know if they're getting fertilized or not... But I was wondering, is it ok to keep a few outside of the incubator for a bit until we get some more? The incubator directions said to keep eggs in a certain temp. (not refridgerated of course) until you put them in the incubator, but I'm not sure how long it's ok to do that. Is it ok if we only put 3 or 4 eggs in to begin with? More questions: How exactly am I supposed to turn the eggs? How do you turn yours? The directions weren't very specific. lol Any helpful information/tips? We finally got the temperature stabilized, so we were plannign on putting in a few eggs soon. I suspect we'll have a few failures on our first go, but we have to start somewhere! Thanks.
