    Could someone tell me the size of call duck egg compared to chicken egg! My egg turned in incubator is too small for medium chicken egg. I bet I had bought a smaller one for parrot eggs. I will have to order a bigger size if the duck eggs are as big as chicken egg. Thanks so much!

    I'd use the blue quail trays for them...I had two eggs that turned out not to be fertile but they fit well. Call eggs are larger than quail eggs but smaller than small chicken eggs so they fit in those.

    Thanks so much for the info! I think the try we have is the right size but we went ahead and ordered the oher 2 sizes in case we want to try hatching chickens or something larger like geese. I guess I've got the bug.
    Thanks again.
