    I've done 3 but there are lots of people on here that have done way more than me @WVduckchick @Jpat too. What do you want to know?

    How do you keep the humidity where you want it?

    "How" depends on your incubator.

    What percentage you want to keep it depends on many factors. Check out the Red link in my signature box below. (if you are on mobile, you'll have to turn phone sideways to see it)

    What breed of ducks do you plan on incubating?

    I’ve done 2 duck egg hatches with an incubator and one goose batch!

    I’ve also done countless chicken egg hatches!
