    Hi everyone, this will be my first time hatching babies. I am picking up call, mallard and khaki Campbell eggs tomorrow morning. And I'm picking up my incubator tonight. I was wondering if I would have any issues with incubating three different breeds at the same time. I know most breeds take 28 days but also know some can be 24.

    Any help or tips for a newbie would be appreciated!

    Will it be okay to put in all together then? They won't have problems with temps?

    Different people would have different answers to that. I, personally would say to incubate them seperately, but there are books that say to incubate them together. I would do some more research if I were you.

    I've only been reading that call duck eggs are some of the hardest to have success with. Can't find a thing about other breeds along with them
