Hi there I have been trying to hatch some mallard eggs to no avail. I have an incubator I keep them in there until about 25 days and then take them out put them in a box with a heat lamp and a bowel off water to keep it humid and keep the temp at 99.5. But nothing hatches, there is a baby duck in there because I candle them to make sure my last three eggs I had in the box two of them started to get a little peck hole like they were going to do something put nothing. After 30 days I cracked one open the baby was formed. So the only thing I can figure is the humity isn't right. If I keep the eggs in the incubator which has an auotmatic turner will they be able to hatch in there? I have read duck eggs are just as easy to hatch as chicken eggs. I have found this not true I have hatched many many chicken eggs with no problems. If anyone has any insight that would be very very helpfull. I do have the mom and dad put mom dont really sit on the eggs. Right now I have a chicken sitting one one of the duck nests. I am hoping she can hatch them since I am unable to. Thanks again for any advice.
