My ones are hatching today!!!! Later than expected!
3of5 ducklings hatched, at least one more will hatch, the other Im not sure about. It looks like there is 1 male and 2 femals so far if the ducklings follow how mom and dad looked when they were ducklings. When I candled yesterday morning there wasn't any movement or not sure if the ducky died. The other larger eggs in the nest are geese eggs, hoping she'll hatch those as well.

I had an odd duckling in my last hatch of 24. This mottled down pattern is new to me. Strangle one side is mostly yellow and the other is mostly dark. Reminds me of pictures of genetic chimeras where one person has two different sets of DNA. They have this checker board zoning effect. In some ways its almost mirror image, one wing tip white one tip dark.
If anyone else has had one like this, I would love to see pictures of it. Duckling and adult. Amazing the variety of colors and patterns in muscovies. I even had a lone barred pop up in this batch, and it was from my lavender female, I guess this means she is split to barred?
