I have been incubating pekin duck eggs and will hit lockdown in 5 days (Monday the 25th) - This is my first hatch and i'm nervous and excited all at the same time. Anyone else hitting lock down?

Hi! I've got duck eggs that *should be* hatching the 27th. One of my eggs went rotten, so I'm down to eight.
I thought we both set the 29th?
I'm excited --- haven't hatched any 'Lings here since early summer. I set another 20 Pekin and Pied eggs yesterday.
Good Luck!

I think i did set the 29th... And mine are due to hatch on the 27th. Lock down the last 3 days which is the 25th. Right? I had gotten rid of my porous egg, it wasn't doing anything, so I still have 6 out of the original 7.... Good luck with yours.

Yes they are pekins..... This is my first hatch. So on the 24th, I should turn them and increase the humidity at that point? Do I candle before lockdown?
