    What day should you put a muscovy duck egg on lock down to hatch?

    Muscovies normally take around 35 days to hatch, so I would put them into lockdown on day 32/ or when they start to internally pip.

    What day are they on? If you look on the duck section of the learning Center there is an article on hatching Muscovy ducks, which might be some help.
