    The woman we got our muscovies from started with two and a year later had 58!!
    We have four females and will keep two drakes.
    How many are the most that have hatched from one hen in a clutch in your experience?
    What is average?

    How much do you sell your ducklings for? (If you do?)

    The biggest hatch I've had was 19 ducklings for one duck. I sell them them for $10 each.

    Sounds about right! They try to take over the world. I started with 3 females and ended up with over 60 before I knew it. Would of been more if I didn't sell them. Each hen hatched 15 within two weeks of each other. All three hens hatched three broods that year.
