I've read that it is very difficult to hatch muscovy eggs in an incubator. I would like to know if anyone out there has had any experience with incubating shipped muscovy eggs. I would really like to try some but don't want to just throw my money away. I understand the risk with shipped eggs, but I wonder if the risk is higher just because they are muscovy?

Yes, in my opinion they are harder to hatch, But I have had some hatches of muscovy eggs that have been very good hatch rate, so I guess its just the way you look at it. But they are very sweet and very good ducks. They are way sweeter and tame than the mallard derived ducks. Just remember to spritze them with water everyday. and remember, they take 35 days, not 28.

Hope this helps.
