I am incubating Ancona duck eggs. FIRST TIMER with duck eggs (I’ve only ever hatched chickens and guineas). My auto-turner broke and I’m hand-turning ever few hours. I purchased another auto-turner, but it has not arrived yet. Now I’m reading that hand-turning is better for duck eggs. True? I’m reading as much as I can (a LOT of info conflicts –but I keep reading/learning). I really need a good answer on humidity. I normally hatch my chickens on the "dry" side of the scale –adding water the first day and re-filling when the humidity drops down to the 20’s or 30’s. Not sure what to do with duck eggs (humidity) since I keep reading so many different opinions. I plan to candle the eggs tomorrow and mark on them where the air cell is located (I have not done that yet). Here are some specifics: What day were they set: April 24th What type of incubator: Genesis Hovabator 1588 fan What temp?: 97 What humidity?: +-47% (because that’s what I read online) Are they set pointy end down or on their side?: on side Turning manually or auto?: manually How many turns per day?: about every 3 hours (too much?/too litter?) Is your incubator clean?: yes Are your eggs clean?: yes (not washed; just clean) Are duck eggs REALLY more difficult to hatch than chicken eggs, or am I over-reading and over-stressing???
