    Ok, I'm getting ready to set a small batch of duck eggs and I would like to know the intricacies of the waterfowl egg before I begin. I have 90% hatch rates with the dry hatch method with chicken eggs, but as I understand it I should not use dry hatching for ducks. I use a little giant incubator with a fan (yes, I do get 90% hatches put of it, I was surprised the first time too). And if anyone would like to join me in my hatch I'd love some company.
