    Ok so im the one with the broody who was sitting on her eggs and some duck eggs. Well today she was roaming around way to much so i figured, why chance it and i took the eggs. I have an incubator. But my question is, say the eggs have about a week left (just guessing) what temp do they have to be at?

    I dont exactly know. But I think duck eggs do the same as chickens, they just get turned longer. But sorry if Im no help.

    They look promising to me...especially that last one. I'd check them again when it's dark out to see if anything is moving in them.

    Duck eggs incubate for 28 days, same temp as chicken eggs, try to keep the humidity a little higher. If you can detect any movement in them i'd get them in a bator and crank the humidity ASAP- they look close.
