    I am going to be hatching some call duck eggs for 1st time in a couple days in a hova bator 1588 with turner. I just want to make sure I have all temp/humidity right.. before putting them in. I read to hatch them at 99.25-99.75 degree and humidity at 55 and increase humidity to 75 @ hatching time. Stop turning eggs 3 days before hatch date. And call ducks take 26-27 days to hatch. Also will it hurt to put 7 chicken eggs in or do they need different temp/humidity? Anything else I need to know? Any help/info very appreciated!

    You are OK! [​IMG]

    Do not put chicken eggs with them because they need less humidity.


    Good Luck!

    All good, just don't do chickens with them. [​IMG] good luck Calls are very hard to hatch. We have doubly 160 eggs due to hatch this week and next week.

    Thanks!! I have been doing lots of research so hoping for at least a few chocolate duckies. Gonna plug hova bator in tomarrow and let it run 24 hrs and then add my eggs. Crossing my fingers!
