some excited, I got my muskovy eggs through the post on Thursday and they are in the bator, I found a thread on here about how to get the best success when hatching muskies. so i'm going to follow these instructions and fingers crossed that I get my boys francis and Ferdinand some girl friends, these eggs are magpie coloring sorry if this is not the right terminology and my boys are this colours also. STUPID QUESTIONS ALERT I know that breeding muskies with my other non musk ducks will produce in fertile babies, but should they get together which of course I will try not to let happen, will this be the only problems, for example heath or deformaties? and also is it acceptable to breed my magpie muskies with another colour of muskie (incase these eggs are not magpies coloured after all) for example with white/chocolate etc? popped the eggs in the bator on Friday 20/11 this of course means they will arrive around Christmas time. not the best planning, but when will my girls begin to lay, will they be old enough in the spring or will it be the next season before they lay.
thanks in advance for the help trying to learn as much as poss as fast as I can x
