    I was think when I got my coop I would have little kiddy pool dug into the ground in the run. So what better than to incubate some duck eggs I was going for some golden cascade eggs. I have incubated before but with chickens. So what im asking is what temperature should they be at ? what humdity? how many times needed to be turned when to raise humdity? what to raise it to? When to stop turning?. Please help all comments are welcomed just no mean ones lol [​IMG]

    Duck eggs take 28 days instead of 21 to hatch. Same temp with slightly higher humidity, especially at the end. Turn them same as the chicken eggs.
