I know I know!!! I should not have waited until now! But I have duck eggs pipping! I have a still air incubator what should the temp be???? I read that it should be 98.5 but is that for a forced air incubator? Or still air?
HELP!!!! Quickly!! They are pipping now!!!!

I don't think you need to be messing with the temp if the eggs are already pipping...could be more trouble...I'd leave it the way it is...

I'm not sure on temps for duck but if their anything like chicks you shouldn't mess with the temps now once they have pipped...

Maybe someone else will chime in with duck knowledge....

Seems a funny time to be asking but if they're pipping the temp must be ok.

I dont know! I do not have a hygrometer. This was just given to me and I thought hey why not put some duck eggs in it?! I do need to purchase a hygrometer. It is on my list of things to do. I am new at the whole duck egg thing! Next time (if there is a next time) I will be more prepared. Promise! Thanks for the help. You guys are awesome!!
