Muscovies 2017

4 posts in this topic

Hi all

After the fox cleaned out the chicken pen last month, I'w decided to have a new go with ducks.

So I loaded the incubater with 25 muscovie eggs, about 2 weeks ago

I got a bit mixed up, thinking they where do to hatch after 28days, so when nothing was happening I thought I goofed it up.

How ever muscovies use 32-37 days so the last few days the eggs are hatching, tossed out 2 eggs that where definitly dead so 23 eggs still alive after 33-34 days excited to see how many will make it

 

cheers

Iff they aren't out by tomorrow I'll try to help them, even if I have bad experience with eggs/chiks that need help to hatch

So I gave them a helping hand, all that was alive, still lives, and seems to be doing fine.:) all though one is a criple,it's got a weird twisted neck.

11 live ducklings now, 3 dead(fully developed) , 9 eggs no sign of hatch(leaving them in for another day) ,2 eggs not developed of 25 total.

A bit disapointing % IMO
