    Any advice on my last 36 hours before hatch. Wed night around 8 PM will mark the 28th day mark. With about 36 hours to go no pecks in eggs yet and no real peeping although I have not been listening too much. Temp remains around 99.5 with Humidity around 70% I took out automatic turner last night and eggs are prepared for hatch. Have candled eggs since day 4 or 5 and have not lost any so conditions must be pretty good inside my incubator. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Don't be worried if they don't hatch on day 28. it can take some time.

    Yes I have a feeling these may take a bit longer just from what I've seen by candling them.... They are larger eggs and bigger than average pekin ducks I believe. Hopefully I will at least see some pecking by tomorrow.
