    I dont want to turn on another bator can I put the duck eggs in the one running with chicken and turkey eggs and just mist the duck eggs, they would be on the other side of turner, if so how many times a day is good. Thanks all!

    Hey its me agian i incubated my duck egg with my chicken eggs and now i got a thriving khaki cambel lol i didnt even mist just remember the duck eggs take somewhere around 28 days so figure in the time diffrence in hatching also when you mist the duck egg just make sure you watch your humidity for a little to make sure it doesnt get to high for the chicken eggs, i wish i knew you had duck eggs lol, next time i need eggs im comming to you and yes i will pay lol


    edited to add to say 1 week till your eggs im testing are due to hatch

    I dont have ducks not yet, I found a ad on Craigslist for hatching eggs and they lived right down the road from us. I got I think 7 Indian Runner duck eggs 5 mixed breed duck eggs, 5 guinea eggs, and 2 bourbon red turkey eggs for $7.00!!!! Yes I said it $7.00 wow these people where so nice! So the eggs go up to school tomorrow for the kids to watch! How fun is that!
    Tell those eggs of yours to hurry I want to see baby chick pictures!
