Oldish post, so I'm sorry if there's another place to post this.
My muscovy laid 9 eggs but only one was fertile. I miscounted the days since she laid 4 eggs one day and about three days later, laid five more. I thought the baby would hatch on Easter but there was no activity. I thought the egg might not have progressed and the chick died so I went to get the egg only to find a pip and the egg jiggled hard in my hand. I quickly put it back and apologized to Mama. Lol. I'll give it a day or two and see what the progress is then. I'm so excited!!
