I have 23 runner duck eggs in the bator. They are not due to hatch until Wednesday, the 28th. I just went and turned them (by hand) and they are peeping at me. I had planned on putting them in an egg carton. 1. Should I go ahead and up the humidity now? 2. Should I go ahead and put them in the carton and stop turning now? What should I do. My temp had been steady, 100.5 - 101.5. I did not notice any pips yet, but kind of freaked out when I heard peeping this early. Someone please give me your input on what I should do. My last clutch of runner eggs hatched 1 & 2 days early. I bought a new thermometer, because some said that it must be wrong. I know that when I candled last night, the eggs were pretty full, but that is normal at this stage of development. They still have 5 days before due date. Dorothy Thanks for advice & input in advance.
