Spraying duck eggs
[Return to Topics]

My mom always sprayed her duck eggs she had in the incubator with a water bottle giving them a fine mist. Someone told her to do it and it would make the shells softer and it would be easier for them to break out off the egg. Has anyone else heard of this or tried it and does it really help?Can or should it be done to chicken eggs?

When I do duck and geese, they are misted twice a day. Like Screaming Hollow said, for the humidity. Chicken eggs are fine with a little dish of water kept full, in the bottom of the incubator.

duck eggs and goose eggs need higher humidity than chicken eggs for optimum hatching. It does help keep the membrane in the egg from sticking to the hatchling.
