-how long do they take to hatch

-When to candle them

-The temperature of the incubator 

-any other important facts

temp usually around 98 to 99 degrees

 

it depends on the duck, mallard derived breeds take around 28 days, muscovies take about 35 to 37 days 

I love my muscovies!!! Wood ,Wood ( yes two ducks named Wood), Shell, Flo, Black cap, Trumps, Mute, Egyptian, Indie, Silver, Spur, Salty, Gaddy, NeNe, Widge, Swiss, Mist, Eider, Comb, Leo, Frost, Eos, Fawn, Orchid, Goldy, Tulip, and Pine
Mandarins: Sky and Ember

In memory:
Marble, Lil bit, Europe, Mask, April, Buffy, Marigold, Canvas, Rosey, Mallard, Farm, Crest, Smew, and Celeste
