    Could a male Muscovy and a female runner have viable eggs? Not planning on hatching any,(<-- that's a lie) just curious.

    They could be viable, but any offspring would be sterile.

    Do you know how to check for the 'bulls eye' appearance of a fertile egg? If not, do an on site search for 'Bulls eye fertility'

    I used to be able to spot a good egg from miles away, but it's been a while since I've hatched any. Lol I'll take a look and try to refeash my skills. Thanks!
