    Anybody incubating duck eggs? I've got a friend that has mallards, and can't get his ducks to sit on their eggs, and ask if I would incubate some as I've done pheasant, and now have chickens on day 16. What 's the time period, and temp and humidity for ducks?

    28 days 99.5*F same or a little higher humidity as chickens. Some mist duck eggs a few times a day with a spray bottle.
