I thank you too! Lots of good comparisons....good review. smile.png I should print it out and give it to everyone who keeps telling me I will regret getting ducks. smile.png

One benefit I forgot to mention is that ducks can be sexed at a younger age and the hens start laying at 4 months old. smile.png

They also produce down if you like quilting and you eat your drakes. We ate our Muscovy drakes years ago but we don't have meat ducks now.

Goodness, has anybody ever seen a chocolate muscovy? They are gorgeous! If only they weren't so hard to find!

The chocolates are what I raised and mine were beautiful. So many chocolates, and other colors as well, end up with the pied gene which destroys the solid colors. I replaced my drakes and kept my hens but it got too hard to find nice drakes without any white markings so I moved on.
