    I'm so confused.
    I am certain these eggs were laid by my muscovies.
    I also have Rouen eggs hatching.
    anyone have experience here?

    Having the temp too high in your incubator can cause them to hatch early

    Where they maybe a mixed eggs? Maybe only part muscovy? From what I understand is when they are a mix they hatch a little sooner.

    yes, its very possible they are a mix. We have Rouens, muscovies, east indies, and calls. I just didnt realize that could take that much off the hatching time!
    At first i thought it was just one, but they're all hatching.
    We've got 3 in the bator, and 3 under a broody banty, all in various stages of hatching.
