    I have a Muscovy duck setting on a dozen eggs. They are due to hatch in three days. With the strange weather we are having it's supposed to get down in the twenties the next few nights. Should I finish these in the incubator or can she handle it? She's outside under an upside down heavy rubber container dry with straw.

    Hi @Egena [​IMG]

    I'm glad you were able to find some assistance on the duck thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1158160/cold-weather-hatches

    I will just say I hope all goes well.
