I am going to be incubating 5 mallard eggs soon and I have few questions (this is my first time incubating eggs)

1. What should I used to monitor the humidity?
2. What should the humidity be for mallard eggs?
3. How often should I turn them?
4. The incubator I am using will have them upright. Will this effect their growth at all, incubating upright?

I often point people in the direction of @Lacrystol , who has done quite a bit of hatching. We have many other folks who do hatching here, and there are stickies (link at the top of the forum index) on hatching also.

I suggest you search the forum archives for "duck hatching" or "duck incubator" and see if that turns up more names and ideas for you.

Or you can go to my site www.lwbarnhouse.con click on the duck tab I have two methods that I have used to successfully hatch out ducks.

My first question to you would be does it come with or with out a fan??
