    I have read that people have successfully incubated with chicken eggs, but I have no experience on that one. How many duck eggs? I really only have 5 spots left in my incubator [​IMG]

    Well I have the spots available. The staggered hatching might be interesting... From what I've read the only real issue people had w/ducks and chicken eggs incubating at once is the week longer hatch for ducks. And getting the 2 eggs to CDA for me to grab and put in my bator.

    if it is just the incubation time I can go ahead and do it. I have a coolerbator for incubation and then a seperate Hatcher. If I set them now the Hatcher will be empty when need to go in

    Thank you, I would like to do the HAL but I don't want to do shipped eggs this time. I can pick them up after work sometime next week if that works for you :)

    the set date is the 5th. Do you want to wait till closer to that date so they are fresh.
