    Hey everyone! I finally decided to join the site since every time I google something for my duck, this is where I end up! I'm hoping someone can give me advice on hatching my own duck egg. I've watched countless videos on YouTube and it seems easy enough but a little more information can't hurt!

    I hope you've found the duck forum...that's the place where you'll find a lot of information.

    Good luck to you!

    [​IMG] glad you have joined us.

    I have no experience hatching ducks or chickens, but is it really much different?

    You can post the question under the ducks forum and the incubating and hatching eggs forum for input.

    Do you only have one egg? I ask because it's not often people have 100% hatch rate. The more eggs you set the greater the chance of having viable chicks.[​IMG]
