  1. Hi Sarah,
    we are 1st time breeders and have just 4 eggs in an incubator. 3 of them are moving a lot, but even on day 29 there is still is a clear air bubble that the ducklings don´t seem to have got in to.
    we have upped the humiditiy to 70% and are just wondering if there is anything else we can do to help them?
    Thank you for your time

  2. hello,

    what is the humidity percentage (NOT FOR WET BULB THERMOMETERS!) for the incubation of indian runner duck eggs?

  3. Hi James,

    Thanks for visiting farmingfriends website and leaving your question. Depending on the time of year the ducklings hatch and the temperature outside, ducklings can in, the Spring/Summer time go outside during the day from about 2-3 weeks old. If ther weather is cold then it may be later than this.

    Just to let you know I have a free forum with a section on ducks that is popular with the farmingfriends members. Click here to check it out

    Do you have some eggs in the incubator at the moment?

    Kind regards
