    I have ordered 10 fertilized eggs for my broody muscovy (Cynthia). She is already sitting on a couple of unfertilized eggs and has been for a week now. Will she sit long enough for the eggs to hatch (they arrive on Saturday)? And do I just put them in her nest or do I have to anything else to them? I don't really know what setting is, and do I need to candle them?
