    Hey do ducks and geese take the same amount of time to hatch or do geese take longer?

    Edited to fix spelling...

    Quote:depends on the breeds, most books say domestic ducks take 28 days, but the people that raise calls say it is more like 26, geese supposed to be 30 days but the lighter breeds usually take less. and of course the Muscovy takes more like 35 days

    I read somewhere that geese and muscovies are both 35 days...but it's been a while since I checked that. Last year I had no fertile goose eggs, so I've never hatched any yet.

    Call ducks take from 24-26 days
    Domestic (non-muscovy) ducks take 28 days
    Geese take anywhere from 28-32 days depending on breed
    Muscovy ducks take 35 days


    So probably not [​IMG]
