    As far as I know that is perfecto! I'm hatching for the first time, and have had temps at 99.5 up to 101.2 and these ducklings are growing like weeds inside their shells. Good Luck!

    I think that a still air temp is suppose to be 101. I am not sure. Let me see if Miss Prissy is still online. I am pretty sure that I have seen her post this several times.

    I would try to get the temp up a little bit 100.5 works good for my duck eggs.

    You need more moisture than for chicken eggs and remember duck eggs take longer to hatch
    28 days...

    Sorry it took me so long. It is 101-102 at the top of the eggs in a still incubator. Hope this helps.
