    Hi, I'm a novice hatcher. I have hatched eggs in the past but not for a long time.
    I have some duck eggs in at the moment. Can I add more now? They're on day 10. I would be grateful for any advice.

    Howdy:welcome:frow Happy:ya to have you join the family. Enjoy your time here at BYC! :)
    If you have a separate hatcher then staggered hatches are fine.

    Since I've never hatched and never had ducks, I'll leave it up to the experts. But I do want to say hello and thanks for joining us!

    Best of luck with your hatching!

    Ten days is a good time between hatches.

    It works best if you have a second incubator to hatch in. TSC Sells a lower cost incubator that will work well for hatching. Lockdown is not as critical as the first 17 days of incubation. You want a good incubator for the first part.
