Oh sheesh... I have had great muscovy hatches. 2 hens and a drake on site. Cinnamon sat well over 35 days on 12 eggs and they all rotted and none hatched and I finally took her off. Marge has been setting for at least 37 days (I know that's within the realmof their setting time. But.. I could smell some were rotten and figured it would be the same. Don't know what's wrong with "dad" - he seems fine... anyway, an egg exploded under her I tried to pull some out - she grabbed it too and ate it (yuk), but really a mess under there w/ down and all. I took out another egg that smelled icky and appear to be bad, and tossed it out the door of the coop. Yeah, you guessed it - it broke - it was a live duck. I put it back under her - it is quite cracked and some blood. It is cheeping. she is looking unwilling to sit back down (can you blame her, what a smell!). anyway, I am currently leaving them alone. Ideas? suggestions? do you think that baby is a goner. Man, I feel so bad.
