    So i have some mallard eggs due to go into lockdown the 7th. I read they hatch in 26 days earlier than most.I also read they hatch 28 days. Do any of you incubate mallard eggs if so how many days till hatch? I want to get them into lockdown in time plus up humidity.

    stop turning and lock down is typically day 25 which is when you will increase the humidity (except for muscovy eggs as they cook longer)
