You might want to try posting this on the incubating and hatching board.

Lots of people have successfully hatched duck eggs, using a broody chicken.

I haven't tried, I do use my broodies to hatch my turkeys, I would suggest you try it and see, I would be interested in knowing if you can. I was thinking about doing it one year because my muscovy hens kept abandoning their ducklings after a week or so.

Not Muscovys, but I've had a chicken hen hatch Rouen duck eggs.

 

What's the incubation time on a Muscovy? My only thought is they're longer than a chicken by quite a bit, aren't they? A chicken hen may give up before they hatch.

Thinking 35 days, though sometimes I'm not thinking too well.
