    I am hatching 7 duck eggs in my Octagon 20 Advance.
    I am wondering how long I should wait to remove them after they hatch.
    I will not 3 day method whatsoever.

    Last time I hatched ducklings I took them out every 2 hours, and at night every 4.

    My brooder is right next to the incubator also
