    I'm getting 2 ancona eggs tomorrow and don't know hatch them any help is welcome
     
  2. Do you have an incubator? If so, read the instructions and be sure to turn the eggs at least 3 times daily. It helps with duck eggs to get a spray bottle to fill with warm water to spritz on the eggs to keep the humidity up. I have a small temperature/humidity thing, very small, that I bought at Walmart that I stick in my incubators to make sure the humidity level is OK.

    If you don't have an incubator, go to local feed mills or farm stores to look for them, cheap styrofoam incubators work OK. Or buy one online with 2 day shipping. Your eggs can wait a few days before going in an incubator if need be.

    So it's just like hatching chicken eggs or regular duck eggs
     
  4. Yeah, my Ancona eggs hatch out just like any other duck eggs I've hatched.
