    Hey everyone had to become a part of this great site. I am new at incubating, I have nine Indian runner eggs, what should my temp and humidity be, it is a forced air incubator. Also, when would my count down be and what should the temp and humidity be. Thanks for everyone's expertise.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I've not done runner ducks before. Please do drop by the duck section of the forum ~https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks
    I'm sure members there will be able to help you.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your runner eggs, hope you have a great hatch.

    Enjoy BYC :frow

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but definitely post on our Duck link that Yorkshire coop left with you and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Welcome to BYC! You would want to incubate around 100 degrees. Humidity I can't remember what it is right now. Good luck to you on your Indian Runners. Very good egg laying hens, a lot of varieties, and they are unique.
