    Yes, all 6 eggs successfully hatched! I'm a proud duck momma. These are my very first babies, laid by my flock, and incubated by me!

    I have hatched out chickens and ducks at the same time, gave them the same treatment, didn't do anything special except mist the duck eggs. All successfully hatch..

    In fact I have even gone as far as to forget to lock down the chickens as well as forget to take them off the turned, loll those poor thing, STILLhatched while swinging back and forth on the turner. Lol.

    One night I heard chirp chirp chirp sure enough a chick was sitting in that turner, lol

    Usually duck eggs need to be misted or sponged where chickens don't, plus ducks do better laying down and not on a turner I an upright position,.. Other then that nothing, humidity can stay the same..temp can stay the same...
