I am about to start incubating my first clutch of duck eggs from my flock hatched in June last year. I have doing a LOT of research here and on the web. I think BYC is fantastic, but I have run into a lot of dead ends when trying to search for tips on incubating DUCK eggs. Those lucky chicken people have an entire section dedicated to incubating and hatching, but Duck-centric topics are all lumped into one category. I know, I know...this is BYChicken, but a lot of people have mixed flocks and I can't be the only person on here who has a flock consisting only of ducks. What I have learned is that incubating duck eggs is similar to incubating chicken eggs, but there are some special considerations to be taken for our cute little waterfowl friends (incubation time, orientation and turning of eggs, and especially humidity). I've searched on waterfowl-only forums, other homesteading forums, and basically anything that has popped up in my search engine. I would like to gather the best threads discussing duck incubation and related topics here and request a sticky in the Ducks forum for those searching like me. Please contribute your link suggestions (ducks only) in this thread and I'll link them here: Incubation of Duck Eggs: http://www.metzerfarms.com/IncubatingAndHatching.cfm (also in second post below, best in clarity, completeness, and accuracy IMO) Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine-Duck Research Lab "Hatching Duck Eggs" Candling Eggs: Metzer Farms Candling Series (duck eggs day 1-28) University of Nebraska-Lincoln Candling general info page (geared toward 4-H and classroom incubation) Pics of Candled Eggs, U of N: Winner, Quitter, Yolker University of Illinois Extension Constructing a Candler Diagram of air cell size/growth courtesy of duckeggs.com (I think the days correspond to chick incubation now that I look closer--anyone know of a diagram for duck eggs?) Happy Hatching!!
