    I posted in the hatching section, but it was under chickens, somebody posted and sugested I post here to get a response.
    Have 3 different types of eggs that I got shipped to me.

    I have
    4-Turkey
    6-Pheasant
    10-Duck

    The eggs came in yesterday and the temperture is not a problem but the humidity requirements are very different.
    Turkey 60% (I think)
    and the Ducks and Pheasants about 75% (I think)

    I am affraid that if I have the humidity too high the turkeys will drownd and if it is too low the ducks will dry out and stick to the shell or something.

    I trying to keep the humidity about 68% and hope it works out fine. Any comments or advice or stories [​IMG]

    Here is a picture of my homemade ice-chest incubator contraption. I hatched EMU eggs in it last year.

    I am wondering if i mist the duck and pheasant eggs if they will help them with the lower humidity?
    But I would have no idea how much or how often?
