    i have 4 muscovy duck eggs in the incubator they are at 33 going on 34 days and they have not yet internal pipped how long does it take for them to do this and i know they take around 35 days to hatch they are alive but they do not really move there eggs. i have put there temperature down down to 37*c and the humidity is 70% during incubation it was 37.5*c and 60% humidity. im worried that i may loose them as i think 1 hasn't made it. what can i do please?

    @julieholt I have heard it's is hard to hatch Muscovy so I let my scovy ducks do the work. But here is some info that may help I hope so.

    Just don't get carried away and start helping, duckling take their sweet time to hatch and Muscovys can take up to 35-37 days.
