Hello everyone, I have hatched a great deal of ducklings this past month from my pekin ducks. They are beautiful and I have had great fertility. I have had great hatches without any deformities nor complications. my problem is that I dont know if I am setting eggs the correct way in the incubator... I dont have an automatic egg turner so I have put egg cartons inside and I put an X on the small end( top) of egg, and an O on the bottom of the egg(larger end). I have set them normally in the egg carton, small top facing ( I always keep large end up when turning due to the air bubble in egg )and I always turn them three times a day. I havent had any complications with this method of hatching but I am wondering, is this the correct way to hatch them? i have heard that duck eggs are harder to hatch than chicken eggs, is that true or not? I have had chicks hatch as well in my incubator but the way I am hatching my duck eggs does this affect hatchings if I hatch chicken eggs this way? i appreciate the help, as I have been confused for a while now. thank you.
