Muscovy due to hatch tomorrow,,,,I can hear pipping and tapping on shell from inside. Will it hatch tonight or still tomorrow? I do not know how long it takes them from start to finish.

Thanks!! An anxious awaiting Duck Mommy

Ducks seem to take forever to hatch! Be patient as they tend to take 24+ hrs to hatch from pip. They will probably hatch tomorrow

Good luck!

You said you can hear it peeping, but has it pipped the shell? I have had ducklings take a full 24-48 hours from first pip (on the shell) to hatch. It could easily take 2-3 more days.
