    We have just discovered about a dozen muscovy eggs with mama setting on them, in our pontoon cover. I've read it's about 35 - 37 days incubation, but now about how long before the ducklings will be ready to travel? We would REALLY like to get in our pontoon, but are patiently awaiting the hatchlings!

    The mama will take them for an outing when they are about a day old. You can try moving her nest to an area adjacent to where she is now when she takes them for a walk.

    Thanks so much! Will just keep watching and then give her a new home on the dock. Do they like to be up as she's been nesting when the pontoon was raised clear up in the air?
