About a week ago, I had my bator die that my duck eggs were in. They were cool to the touch and the temp in the bator was 82 when I noticed it (Christmas morning I remember!! ) They were about day10 then. They should be due between the 9th and 11th. I was candling last night, and there are a few that look very full, like I remember the pekins I hatched around Xmas looking the last week of incubation. So those seem to be on time. Then there are some that still have a lot of open space inside the shell? They are all due around the same time, but judging by the candling, seem to be at least 3-4 days different? They are all in the same bator, and I have chicken eggs due around the same time, that are sharing a bator with other eggs that are not due yet. So when it comes time for the duck eggs to be 'due', since there are some that are noticeably younger, should I take them out and put them in a different bator, or will they be ok if they are a few days behind the other ones, but still in the same bator? I had not expected to have a staggered duck hatch, just chickens!
