    I tried to incubate 15 muscovy egg that my uncle found on a jobsite and 8 were upside down two hatched and died and five made it and were very weak at first ...I would like to no what a good method is for incubating muscovys or an idea of what the reason is that I had a bad experience

    Muscovy eggs are hard to incubate but I think there is a Muscovy sticky

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/incubating-and-hatching-muscovy-eggs Muscovys are hard to incubate compared to pekin or Indian runner, Excellent, I've never incubated Muscovy. My old hen had 14 ducklings (shown below )only one left, the rest was killed, is a khaki Campbell Muscovy cross. At This moment I have Welsh harlequin(excellent ) / khaki Campbell( excellent ) and runner (excellent )/ blue Swedish (excellent ) and pure runner.
