    Here's a great link with good info on incubating duck eggs, be aware though, incubation can vary based on the breed of duck. You might want to ask about a specific breed.

    The biggest advice I can give - mist them daily and be very patient when they start to hatch. they take way longer than chickens to get out of the egg. It will drive you crazy!
