Hi, this is probably a frequently asked question but I can't find any answers. I have a muscovy duck sitting now for 5 days on eggs. She has been off her nest all night ( by mistake locked in the goose pen) and returned to her nest this morning. What's the chance of her eggs hatching? Thanks!

than657 andrewschookz for your reply - I've been wondering, as I see Miss Mussie dutifully attended her shiny eggs if it might just be a lost cause :)
