    I dont know what incubation length is for either, but I have read it somewhere and I do remember that the hybrid offspring take the average length between the two species.
    you should be able to find it if you google "mule duck"
    good luck and let us know when they hatch. We want to see that.

    yes it will be what you call a Mule duck, also depends on what is laying the egg, if its a pekin male breeding with a muscovy hen then it will be 35 days untill hatch, now if its a pekin hen with a muscovy drake then it would take 28 days, hope this helps, also the offspring from the mix will never be able to reproduce! they will lay eggs but will never be fertile

    Some of the male offspring will be fertile.
