    [​IMG] I'm so excited... Today makes day 35 since I noticed my duck hen sittin all day on her hidden nest, then a few days later my other duck hen went broody in the coop, so I took 8 eggs from under the shed & put them under the one in the coop... The eggs under the duck hen in the coop are hatchin! They all had pips in them yesterday & the ones under the shed had lots of pips too (none of these have hatched yet). This is soooo cool!

    Ahhh, sweet! Looks like you have a friendly hen. [​IMG]

    I have two Muscovy hens now broody. One is calm and only squeaks at me while the other will lunge and flap at me. I just added some shipped Muscovy eggs to the newest nest to see if the hen will do the work for me. [​IMG]

    So adorable. Muscovies are such beautiful birds and yet it's hard to find hatcheries that sell them. Good luck with the rest of the eggs.[​IMG]
