    Well, today I was given 14 fertile ringneck hatching eggs. My question for you experts on hatching ringnecks is how many days does it take for them to hatch? What things should I do differently for hatching ringneck eggs from chicken eggs?

    Thanks a bunch guys!

    Here is how i did mine. I used a LG with a turner and a fan. Temp 99.5 and humidity at 50 % for the first 21 days. I removed my eggs from the turner on morning of the 21st day and upped the to humidity 70. I had 1 pip on day 22 and hatched on day 23. 4 hatched on day 24. 8 hatched on day 25 and 4 hatched on day 26. Total of 17 hatched out of 24 eggs.
