Which is better forced air or still air for hatching duck eggs?
The way I understand it, forced air is better because it helps to maintain the temp and humidity better than still air.
Please correct me if I'm wrong. I plan to add a fan to my bator as soon as I can find one. Looking for an old computer for the fan out of it.
Well that is what I thought but I wasn't sure because I thought that it would dry the membrane out when they are trying to hatch.
I have actually had the best luck with Cayugas, Sebastopols and my Muscovies with the still air.
I would turn off the fan when the chicks are going to hatch. To try to prevent that from happening.
