It is only day 24 and they are still on the turner and I haven't upped the humidity. Should I take them off the turner and up the water in the other well? close or open wide the vent . Please let me know asap. Many thanks

yes take the turner out or take them off the turner----depends on the type of turner, but chicks and ducklings have been killed by being caught up in turner once hatched.

sorry can't answer your question about the humidity---only started incubating this season and only chickens, maybe someone else will be able to help you with that


cheers pam

I dont know about ducks - sorry.

I have heard that ducks need more humidity than chickens and usually getting enough humidity is a problem.

If it was me, I would take the eggs off the turner and then once they are properly placed in the incubator I would mist them with warm water but being careful not to put water in any pipped holes and drown the ducklings.
