    I'm a newbie, I currently have some duck eggs in incubation, and have just ordered some more duck eggs (for my duck army lol) I'm also interested in hatching some Silkies later on too.

    Any help/tips/suggestions welcomed.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Good luck with your duck eggs :fl I hope you have a great hatch! Have you checked out the learning centre? Lots of great articles that will be off help to you. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    There is a section on incubating and a section of ducks, I'm sure you will enjoy checking it out.

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    If you haven't found it yet, there's a duck forum here with some very helpful, knowledgeable members. I'm sure some of those experienced folks could pass on tips:

    Very cool. I've thought about doing ducks myself as I've heard they are more hearty than chickens, and well, it can get pretty **** cold where I live (in the winter obviously).

    The whole "duck army" thing sounds cool. Best of luck!
