    I have a 9200 little giant incubator with a chicken egg turner. Will the duck eggs fit in the turner and not need an expansion ring? Or will i have to hand turn them or buy a goose egg turner? [​IMG]

    My duck eggs are bigger than my chicken eggs. I've never tried the in the turner, but I believe hand turning waterfowl eggs is better. [​IMG]

    It is going to depend on the breed of duck. NO WAY the eggs from my Cascades would fit in an LG turner.
