    Just wondering if anyone knows how many duck eggs will fit in the Brinsea 20. Also, is the humidity pump needed? Humidity in my area is very stable, my Incuview is doing well and has not needed much fiddling with, humidity-wise.

    After learning that filling my Brinsea Advance 20 to capacity (24 chicken eggs) was a bad idea when 22 chicks hatched in there [​IMG], I don't fill it to even near capacity. The last time I incubated duck eggs in there, I didn't use the auto-turner so they were on their sides, and 12 fit in there comfortably. I also used a separate hatcher.

    I don't use the humidity pump and have been able to keep the humidity stable without much trouble.
