    This is my second hatch using an incubator. The first was chicks that went great. I got some duck and guinea eggs at the same time and put them in. Now, I dont know when to start lockdown because the ducks take alittle longer than guineas?

    My questions

    When should I start lockdown?

    Should I manually turn the duck eggs for acouple more days?

    I put the incubator in the bathroom during lockdown so I can get the humidity up in the room incase I need to open in emergency.
    Thanks in advance!!

    Can anyone give me their advise? Am I the only silly one to do this?
