    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to BYC and Incubating. I'm currently in the process of purchasing call duck eggs to incubate. I own a Brinsea Mini Advanced, does anyone have any tips for incubating and/or raising call ducks? Also what are your opinions on pinioning? Thanks![​IMG]

    Personally I don't think pinioning is necessary. They are other ways to keep them from flying if you need to.

    Watch your humidity. I hand turn instead of using an auto turner. And be patient when it comes time to hatch. Make sure you have a safe place for them to be caged.

    Most importantly..... Have fun!! They are tons of fun. I love mine!
