Hi! 35 days seems such a long time to wait for eggs to hatch! I set eggs from my Muscovy New Years Day and this morning I have a pip! These set 1/1/11 were their first fertile ones. I have more Muscovy eggs set the 6th and the 13th then they stopped laying! Got the first egg yesterday since the 13th. Is it common for them to start and stop like that? For about 2 weeks, I was getting 3 or 4 eggs a day (there are 4 girls). Lisa edit: Nothing else happened all day long, so I checked the eggs and all 3 were dead-in-shell --- fully developed, yolks mostly absorbed.
