    So I keep reading different things, I was hoping someone would be kind enough to clarify it for me. How long do duck eggs incubate for? Also lockdown at which day? Thanks guys x

    Most are 28 days, but Muscovy eggs are 35 days. ;) Those are the basic guidelines, but sometimes they hatch a little early or a little late. So it can actually be +/- a couple days.

    You want to start lock-down a few days before their expected hatch day, so day 25 for most duck eggs.
