    I send a thread on Feb. 20-2017 and have not got a answer? I have a 2-year old female muscovy duck that laid 10 eggs on starting Jan. 27-2017 and she has not been sitting on them for any length of time...will they hatch or not? she does turn and cover them from time to time.....Please help me!!!!

    If she's not sitting on them constantly they won't hatch, no. She might be laying more to get a larger clutch because she doesn't feel she has enough. Honestly if they are from January then at this point they're not going to hatch. Take them away and let her start over with new eggs.
