    Thanks, I'm hatching call ducks nd have them in the incubator in trays with the small end down. But I have heard that u should never incubate calls on end that they need to lay on their sides, is this true or am I ok?

    No. Waterfowl should be on the side not on end...at least that is what I have been told.

    No prob...I am not an expert, but happy to help if I can. Check the Breeder's directory for that BEI male. Also, search for call duck info here. There are a few threads talking about calls.
