    Hay everyone I got my start in chickens by buying chicks for my boys for easter eight years latter I find myself on BYC reading about hatching eggs so I've borrowed an incubator I've gotten a dozen Peking duck eggs and I'm going to try my hand at hatching some ducks thanks for all the great information I've read on this forum

    Welcome to BYC --- I'm afraid if your chronic poultry addiction has advanced to the hatching stage there is little that can be done to save you from full on obsession, you especially will find little help for it here as this site is full of nothing but enablers, lol. Glad you've joined us!

    Have you checked out the "Other Backyard Poultry," forum - you will find duck threads there and people who can advise on incubation.
