    Ive been looking for my muscovy ducks eggs for a week and i finally found them. She layed them in a pile of hay i left in a corner of my barn. there are about 6 there now. I want her to hatch them so i'm not touching them. The eggs i got last week from her , i put underneath a broody cochin bantam, only four since shes so small. My uncle's muscovies caught a virus from the canadian geese that fly into his pond every day. i'm going to bring the duckling to him when they hatch so he can restart his flock.

    Congrats! They're really good at hiding them. My muscovy hid her nest right next to the nest box in my coop and I didnt find it until it already had 3 eggs in it! [​IMG] Now after a long long long wait, I have babies hatching.
