    Quote:I hope the eggs aren't in yet. They will take 33-37 days and most will hatch on day 35. They need around 60% humidity until lockdown, then around 75%. Much higher than chickens need. I have my bator running at a steady 100*. I have runners in there now and they are a mallard derivitive so they take less time. 28 days.

    Quote:You are more than welcome, and I hope someone that hatches muscovies regularly sees your post. I mostly hatch chicks or mallard derivitives, hence 28 days. But the temps and humidity are the same!!!

    Good luck!!!
