    Hi, My duck has been sitting on her eggs for +- 28 days but she got off her eggs and went out the gate now we don't know where she is. I need some advice about the eggs please, and how to incubate them.

    well who ever you got them from is dumb

    you probably have pekin or a mix

    as long as you can keep the eggs warm preferably with a light/heat lamp not blankets because they dont produce their own heat yet (well they do but not enough to hatch

    some should hatch if its realy been about 28 days.

    Well, the response I typed seems to have disappeared…..

    I would get an incubator if at all possible.

    You need to keep those eggs at about 98F, if I read the Sticky on hatching waterfowl correctly. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/491013/goose-incubation-hatching-guide-completed

    This is a very critical time for the eggs.

    They also need some humidity - around 65%.

    I hope a hatcher checks in here soon.

    Okay, apparently your thread came in twice - I answered on the other thread. Really, this is a critical point for those eggs - those littles cannot make it if they are not warm enough and humid enough. Please put them in a proper place.
