    All of mine are 19 weeks old today. I need some chicks hatched out this spring.......

    Does not take them long at all...............when they are ready. [​IMG]


    Not every muscovy hen goes broody, just give them time - keep them well fed with fresh water. Once they start laying, you might get a hen (or all of them) to go broody.


    Good luck
