    Muscovies are 35 days, that's 5 weeks, you should be close to the hatch. [​IMG]

    Read your post too fast, sorry, you said "they are not Muscovies," not "they are Muscovies". [​IMG]

    I'm not sure. Sorry. What kind of eggs are they?

    On the Muscovie crosses, do you know if the drake was the Muscovie, or the hen?

    5 weeks is 35 days. If they are not muscovies, they are dead. Not sure on the muscovy cross....
