    Is there anything different one has to do with duck eggs as opposed to chicken eggs when it comes to artificial incubation? Do you keep the humidity between 45% and 55% during incubation and then raise it going into lockdown? I know the Muscovy will take roughly 35 days to hatch. They usually sit and hatch for me but since they were laying well, I took a handful (about 30) and threw them in the incubator 6 days ago. I am using a HovaBator with fan and automatic egg turner.
