How Long Do Duck Eggs Take to Hatch?


Generally, eggs from normal ducks such as the Pekins hatch after twenty eight days. However, some species of ducks such as the Muscovy ducks take up to thirty five days to hatch.

You can incubate and hatch duck eggs yourself or you can allow a broody duck (or even a broody hen) to lay on them to incubate and hatch the eggs. Mallard duck eggs hatch after about 27 days of incubation. Muscovy duck eggs take 35 days to hatch. Pekin duck eggs and most other duck eggs hatch after 28 days of incubation.
Usually, duck eggs are incubated by a mother duck for around 28 - 30 days. If the eggs have not hatched by then the eggs have probably not been fertilized by a male duck.
