I have three duck eggs that will be hatching soon, one already is internally pecking but hasn't pipped yet. I heard that placing them in cartons to hatch helps a bit, and wanted to know when to place them and how. Any help?

I don't use cartons, but if your eggs are already internally pipping, they should be in the hatcher with increased humidity and getting into position for hatch. Personally, I just lay them down on the wire floor and they hatch fine.

for only 3 eggs you might just as well leave your eggs as they are.

the egg carton method is mostly for large numbers of eggs hatching to keep the several hatched birds from rolling the unhatched eggs around..
