    I don't know anything about call eggs but what's the incubation period??? Lockdown usually occurs a few days before the end of the period!!

    Quote:Hi Pato call egs?? call duck eggs? i have heard that call eggs could take up to 26to 28 days to hatch you are now on day 23 right? so i would say YES go into lockdown and good luck.. also try to keep humidity up to 80% during lockdown i heard they are so hard to hatch but good luck and keep us posted
