    I have 9 runner eggs in the bator now. I have read alot about the carton method for chick eggs, but nothing about duck eggs.

    Today is the last day to turn, so I need information as to put the eggs in a carton when I fill the waters tonight or not.
    I have candled a few times and everything looked good to me, but I am not an expert. That is why I am looking to all of you for your help. [​IMG]

    Three days to go. I can hardly wait, but very nervous.

    So, carton or no carton for duck eggs.

    Best of luck. I would assume the pros and cons will be the same in duck or chicken eggs.

    Thanks silkiechicken

    I posted Thursday, because that was the last day to turn, but got not replies, so I decided against it. When I went to turn the eggs for the last time, I had pipping & chirping. I now have 6 ducklings hatched out & waiting on 3 more to hatch. They were only on day 25. Everything looks good with the 6 that have hatch so far.
