The aim of this paper is to highlight the importance of having a good control of incubation factors of ducks because they are the key in obtaining high technological and economical results in duck husbandry. Incubation factors can be divided in two great categories: 1. reproduction factors (mating system, the technologies used in duck husbandry genetic quality of the birds, sex ratio in the flock, the age of the birds, etc.); 2. incubation factors (egg collection, egg storage, preheating, incubation temperature, humidity, ventilation and movements of the eggs). Having a very firm control of this factors, one can achieve good incubation results which, later, can be translated in to bigger production of meat (and secondary productions) and bigger income for the farmer.
