1It has been reported that duck eggs hatch better in still‑air incubators than in forced‑air incubators.

2For still‑air incubators add 2‑30F. to the recommended operating temperatures.

3Better hatchability may be obtained if goose eggs are sprinkled with warm water or dipped in lukewarm water for half a minute each day during the last half of the incubation period.
