    Hello all,
    I've got a Janoel12 incubator. I have read that it has can hold nine duck eggs so I just bought my first duck egg batch(9 eggs). I tried to fit them in the incubator but it only fits 6. I really need help on this!!!! Please, anyone!!!!!!!Thanks.
    P.S. The eggs are just a day old so I am keeping the two extra in storage while the last one is sitting in the corner of my incubator.

    I wish I knew more about this… perhaps @Lacrystol has had some experience with this.

    duck eggs are different sizes, does it say what kind of ducks? because a call duck would be a lot smaller then a Musky duck, what kind of ducks are you putting in?

    that particular bator you would need to keep an eye on the temp, I have read that it has a hard time heating up. So as long as your not having a temp issue, it's a pretty good bator...

    can you send me a pic of the inside, perhaps I can see how you have them set up, perhaps we can arrange it so that all of them fit..

    I guess you've taken any kind of included tray out so that they just lay on the mesh floor?

    OH yes, ducks need to be laying down, you can't have the upright like chickens..
