    Depends on the kind of duck breed you have. Anywhere from day 28 for the common duck to day 35 to 37 for Muscovy I've read.

    I thought it took like 48 hours to hatch but when do the first pip! or use their air cell. ANY LINKS. I dont know what to look for.
    They all look dark. Occasionally when i candel i can see a foot move or something.
