    Makes things difficult... but turning is very important. Raising humidity for hatching wont effect the duck eggs much as they generally need higher. Turning between lockdown and when they pip isnt so bad- but even turning once a day once the chicks start hatching is better than not at all for those few days. You may just have to risk turning but keep a close eye on the chicken eggs prgress- and the humidity.
