Our muscovie hen has set on her eggs. But I wonder?

    We have a trio of magpies that are new to the whole nesting thing. They have a good sized clutch of eggs that they aren't setting on.

    So I was thinking that since our scovie will take 35 days, if I throw in some magpie eggs at the right time(about 5 days from now), they should all hatch about the same time right?

    sounds right, but the hen will have to cooperate by agreeing to set!! They don't always decide to brood the nest
