    I have about 15 duck eggs that were found scattered around our neighborhood lake after a flood. I put them in the incubator on May 1. I do not know the breed of the duck eggs. I am nervous about putting the eggs on lock down too early or too late depending on gestation for its particular breed. Is it more important to keep the eggs turning, or to let them sit. I am on day 25 today! Please help!!!
