    I have two that are sharing a nest as well. Their nest is in a kiddie pool. I think that is so sweet that they can share in the sitting. One stays when the other goes out to get some fresh air. 20190429_071556.jpg

    I have two Muscovy hens that have nested under our house. To my knowledge, they have been sitting for plenty long to have hatched their eggs. I noticed them going under the house late March. My timing may be off some but I really am beginning to wonder if something isn't right.
    Will hens sit on a nest that isn't viable? They come out for their morning feeding and swim and then again in the the evening. They are in a huge hurry to take care of business so that they can get back to their nests. Any ideas?

    Are 16 eggs from one hen or are you letting her sit on another hens eggs as well? I am trying to figure our how to hatch ducklings while still getting eggs. All of my hens are on nests. Well, one has 9 ducklings. Started with 10 and 1 got separated and disappeared.
    I am missing having eggs. How can I have my ducklings without losing out on getting eggs?

    Hi! I have Muscovies. I have 3 tame pet ducks, the first ones I hatched on my own.

    I also have two drakes and 3 more ladies, and hatch and sell ducklings.
    With a silver drake and barred black pied females, I got blue ducklings last year. This year yielded a more diverse batch, including this thing of beauty; a barred silver. His name is Holley, and he's staying to hopefully create more pretty duckies.

    They are gorgeous. I love that silver drake. Muscovy's are just the greatest breed of duck.
