    This is my first batch of fertile muscovy duck eggs. I am trying to guesstimate when they will hatch. I am thinking they are 25 days old but any body know by looking at the egg picture of that's close? [​IMG]

    You're probably pretty close. I would say they're around 20 days old. I can't really tell, but the embryos are still pretty small from what I can see--and I believe that they take 35 days to hatch.

    We found them on April 18th and they were already showing veins. I went back 13 days (that's number of eggs she had) but that's not very accurate lol. She had them under our gazebo so it was a bit of a surprise.... We are about to go on vacation so I just want to be prepared before they hatch if it's while we are gone. Don't need house sitter to have a shock lol
