If you are wanting to semd muscovie eggs - i doubt the reciever will do very well.

waterfowl eggs are more vaunerable to the rough handling than chicken eggs, and they lowers their hatch rate.

Also if people wish to hatch muscovies they must use a muscovy - hatching mussies in a incubator is a waste of time.

Eggs need to be individually wrapped in bullbe wrap, and placed pointey end down in a carton. the catron should be filled with the bubble wrap and then bubble wrap should be wrapped around the outside. I then place in an express post bag with newspaper FIRMLY filling any spaces in the bag - you could proably use bubble wrap instead of paper if you wished.

Regards

Honk

hi honk.
thanks for your help mate. i was thinking about getting rid of some of my eggs as my 3 spare girls are laying and i dont want any ducklings from them at the moment as i only want to breed from my 2 best girls this year. and i was hopeing to find someone else who wants to breed the bronze color ? and who will breed the color better than i could . but i find it hard to find other people interested in breeding muscovys for showing that dont keep other than white mammoths. but i maybe better to breed from my girls and rear them up and maybe put them in a poultry auction but i would hate to see my bronze birds go to meat buyers as you dont see the color around .
regards jase
