    Last time I incubated duck eggs they were Khaki Campbells and I was positive they would hatch on a weekend when I was available to record their hatches because every website I went to told me that they hatch on day 28. They hatched on day 25 and I was at school. [​IMG] (Temperature of entire incubation was between 99.2 and 99.9; Humidity was 55%; Lockdown didn't happen because they hatched a few hours after I put them in lockdown that morning)

    I'm ordering Pekins this time. How many days is incubation when YOU hatch pekins? I'm using a fan-incubator and I will set the thermostat at 99.2. I really don't want to miss it again! [​IMG]
