    My muscovy female has been sitting on a nest for 38 days. For the last 5 or 6 days she has been not sitting on the nest during the day, only at night. During those 5-6 days it was high 90 degrees but one day it was only high 80's. I candled a couple of the eggs and there doesnt appear to be any movement and there is no internal pip. Is it possible that the ducklings are still alive?

    Yes its possible their still alive. Might take longer if shes not sitting a lot. I would have incubated them by now since she's not sitting. Sounds like she might be tired of sitting. ~Don't know. Do you have a incubator? If you do, candle them then put them in the incubator. 38 days is a lot but maybe there's a good chance of them hatching. Good luck & keep us posted. Hopefully somebody with more experience will post soon to give good advice. ~Julie~
