    Hi, I'm very new to all this and I'm looking for advice.
    I am currently hatching Indian runner duck eggs and one has started pipping.
    I have 3more that haven't started yet and I'm worried about the temperature they should be at. My incubator is set for a 2 hour cooling period but I read that when they start hatching it should be at a maintained temp. My machine won't let me reset to turn the cooling off period off.
    Help please.
    Sorry for the rambling
    Kind regards
