I bought some Muscovy eggs on Ebay. Only 2 hatched. I think they are barred chocolates from what I've read and what the breeder posted?? These are my first muscovies. They are much different than all of the other ducklings I have had. Granted they are only 1 week old now but I've noticed they don't play in their water, don't eat and poop as much and aren't growing as rapidly. Their legs are much tinier and seem very fragile compared to others. I am hoping I have a boy and a girl. I've named them Fred and Ethel.
It wont be long to tell. Drakes are a much longer body type. They are so adorable, love scovys!
