    I can't remember! I know we are getting close with the stopping of the turner, but how many days do runner duck eggs stay in the bator?

    this is my first time with any type of duck and I wan't to be right!

    I think you stop turning on day 25 and they're supposed to hatch around day 28.

    Yes, it takes 28 days for runner ducks. I have 27 in the bator now. This is my second time to hatch runners. The first time, I had 9 eggs and 6 hatched, but they started pipping on day 25. Hatched on days 26 & 27.

    As for this batch, I will do as before and stop turning on day 25. I will wait and see if I have another pip whenever I turn them for the last time, like before....lol

    Good luck,
