    Do you think that a dozen of them is to many to fit under a good size hen? I was thinking about ordering some that's why I'm intrested.

    They are big. Bigger than the rouen eggs I have. I think my girls would be hard pressed sitting on 12 muscovy eggs.

    So they are a lot bigger than a normal size duck egg?

    I'm not sure...they are bigger than chicken eggs but not nearly as big as goose eggs. 12 may not fit under one hen and she may give up before the 35-37 days is over...
