    At what age do ducks reach full size?

    I know this is an old post. But I was curious about muscovy and weight. Im seeing a lot of posts about peoples drakes reaching 15lbs at 5 months. If my drakes are 7.5 at 5 months, how much bigger should I expect them to get in the next few months. Are they mostly done growing by now? All 4...

    Hi, I'm in Southeastern VA. I really need to find a home for my drake. He is 4 months old. I thought he was a female and I cant have more drakes. He is so sweet. He loves belly rubs. I am willing to deliver him if the drive isn't too far. I also have 5 muscovy ducklings that I am selling for 5...

    Muscovy Drake 4 months old

    This is one of our family pet ducks. We got ducklings unsexed and unfortunately we had 4 boys! Two found homes. I already have a Cayuga pair and the lone female is completely surrounded by drakes. We call him Brew. He is very loving. Likes belly rubs and being held. Here he is perching on my...

    Muscovy Size Question

    I think you are right. I'm picking up some ducklings tomorrow to get them some girls. Hopefully I don't grab a bunch more boys! I grabbed 4 last time, all draklets. Two were given to a friend so I need some lady birds. I might need to still re home one. This was my first time. O was hoping I'd...

    Muscovy Size Question

    I thought they were females this whole time except they don't make the girl sounds that sound like trilling or cooing. One makes kind of a "ch ch ch" sounds really fast and the others sound is lower like breathing out hard. Did your females make their girl sounds later or are these sounding like...

    Muscovy Size Question

    I plan to weigh them again in a couple weeks. If they gain another lb they would have to be drakes because an over 8 lb scovy hen would be too big im thinking. It would be crazy that I have such small drakes. Their dad was a monster.

    Muscovy Size Question

    A lot of people are. Which I am ok with. It's a bummer because I'll have to re home them but that was always the risk. But they are so under weight for drakes. Unless they gain it all later. I'm trying to figure out when they will put on that 5 lbs or so. When will I start to see that?

    Muscovy Size Question

    I picked them up myself. Their mom is big. About the size they are now. Their dad was huge. I don't know how quickly her strains develop carunkles on that farm. They don't hiss like I have heard the drakes do in online videos but they also do not trill or coo. They are extremely quiet. Almost...

    What sex are my 5 months old muscovy ducks

    I really hope so! I have to rehome at least one if they are male. Because they havent made any of the typical girl noises, cooing or trilling, I've started to doubt.

    What sex are my 5 months old muscovy ducks

    I was reading this post and decided to share my two muscovy. I vent sexed them as female (but I am new at it.) They are slightly bigger than my male cayuga in appearance but seem quite a bit heavier than him. They often step on their own feet. They are very quiet. Almost never make a sound. But...

    When will my sweet duck be back?

    I noticed that she is more calm this week. Three weeks post egg and duckling removal. She chases the 3 month old ducks less. Yesterday they actually ate watermelon together without issue. She also let me hold her with out quacking and was very calm.

    Yea, we grab her egg ever morning. She doesnt seem interested in a nest at the moment.

    When will my sweet duck be back?

    Mocha is a Cayuga. She was very sweet. Calm, easy to hold, maybe a little sciddish. She built a beautiful nest and went broody for the first time. She wasn't great at having a nest, broke some eggs, knocked many out... but she was a good sitter and defender. Well... she wasn't a good mom first...

    Duck throwing out eggs

    I'm having the same problem. I have seen my ducks accidently crack an egg they laid and carry it to their water bowl. Rare but has happened. We have been losing fertilized and developing eggs now. The pen is fully enclosed. We started to suspect a snake is dropping in but today the egg was in...
