    28 days for Mallard decedents and 32 or 35 (I am not sure) days for Muscovies.

    28 day incubation period for all ducks except muscovies, which is 35. You can get mule ducks (muscovy/pekin mixes) that take 32 days. Most ducks in my experience will pip before hatch date and spend upwards of 48 hours sitting around afterward before actually zipping.
