    On day 35 my muscovie abandon her nest. The eggs were cold when I found them. I put them in my bator and I can see 6 out of 10 moving so I got my fingers crossed they will hatch. If they hatch will she take the babies and care for them?

    I would warm them up. Don't overdo it. About 95 degrees should be about right. If they are moving you still have a chance. Never had moscovies, so I can't say she will mother them. A goose would, but probably not a chicken. Give it a try.......Pop

    I ended up with 7 lovely Muscovy, not bad for shipped eggs. One pipped and died without hatching.
