    Hi everyone. My name is Ange. My husband Ben and I are just getting started raising chickens, turkeys, geese and ducks. We live in Alabama. We've successfully hatched chickens and turkeys in the incubator. We have 3 of our Muscovy ducks on nests now and I have some of the eggs my not so broody Muscovy is laying around my yard in the incubator. I have already hatched 1 duckling but I lost 2 during the hatch. I am in the process of reading your article on hatching Muscovy ducklings so hopefully I have better luck this time. I have already learned lots from this site as I regularly have questions. Happy to be a new member.

    I have Muscovy ducks in the incubator and I have 3 ducks on nests too. Hopefully they all hatch out. Those baby ducks are adorable.
