    Good morning to all!
    Ive been reading up on incubating duck eggs as my hen has started laying (finally). The incubator is a little giant still air incubator. The directions say to set the thermomiter on top of the eggs. Reading here and there online some say to set it about mid height of the eggs. Is there a huge difference in temp from the center to top or center to bottom of the egg? Im still in the set up stage and have a few days i can get everything fine tuned. And I appreciate the help..... :)

    Welcome to the Duck Forum!

    I am useless for incubator advice, but I wanted to pop in and say hello, and thank you for joining us. We have some wise, kind, seasoned hatchers on the forum. There is a Thread Formerly Known as Hatch Day Is Today that you may want to look at.
