    Anyone have a idea with this combo, I dont want to stop turning early but I also dont want them in the turner if they are going to hatch. Thanks again.

    It will be 32 days according to Storey's Guide to Raising Poultry.

    Aren't Muscovey's crossed with other duck breeds sterile?

    Quote:Nope. They are mules or hinnys depending on the way they are crossed. But those resulting offspring are sterile.
