    I am just wondering, what size egg trays does anyone use to set call duck eggs in an incubator? I don't actually have any eggs yet, but I have a cabinet incubator on loan to mess with, and I am fussing around with it until I get some chicken eggs to "practice" with, and I have all the goods with it, but I have several sets of trays so I am wondering, what size are the call duck eggs? I have seen quail eggs and I can compare to whatever the store sells in chicken eggs...thoughts, breeders?

    Call duck eggs are about the size of small chicken eggs. I use chicken egg trays in my incubators to set call duck eggs in.

    Thanks! I have been studying this incubator I have, trying to figure out if I could slither one more tray in at the bottom for hatching, so if they are that small, I don't think that would be a problem...
