    ok. i think im gonna go with the lgs... [​IMG] hopefully they work... :\\ and i will use my other as a hatcher...
     
  8. Quote:I would put them in the forced air incubator, and let them hatch in that one. They will hatch better, and will fluff up faster.

  10. Yup, if the duck eggs fit, then you can put them in there.
