    Alright so i might be going to get some pekin duck eggs tomorrow to try and hatch out! [​IMG] im SOO excited [​IMG] . ive never hatched duck eggs before, only chicken, so i need a briefing on what to do exactlyy. how long will the incubation period be? avg temperature? avg humidity? hand-turned on their sides? do they need to be taken out and cooled? do they need to be sprayed with water? any other things i should know?
    answers would be MUCH appreciated [​IMG]
    THANK YOU [​IMG]
