    I need to know what the correct temp for duck eggs is. I also need to know the same for chickeneggs as well.
    I have 4 duck eggs that supposed to hatch on thursday. I am a bit concerned because they dont really look like they will be ready to hatch.
    the temp in my bator has been about 99.0.

  2. Hi! I incubate my duck eggs same as chicken eggs --- 99.5* at egg height in incubators with fan and 101.5* at egg height in incubators with no fan.
    Do they look like they are just a bit slow developing?
    Good luck!
