    Muscovy claw question

    Several of my muscovies have a claw which appears to be broken off short. In each case, this claw is on the outer side of the foot - the "little toe" or "pinkie toe" side if they had human feet. Is this common in muscovies? Does anyone know how it happens?

    Why won't my Muscovy ducks roost

    I just recently bought some Muscovy Ducks. I heard that Muscovy Ducks like to roost so I built them a place to roost but none of them have touched it. They even have a place to roost in their coop but they sleep on the ground. Is this normal? Do some ducks prefer not to roost or are they just...

    Will my Muscovy Ducks fly away?

    I just got some Muscovy Ducks. I know that they're able to fly but I don't know how well they're able to. Can they fly long distances like wild ducks do or do they fly few inches or feet off the ground. I ask because I don't want them to fly away and there is a small pond in the woods behind my...

    Crooked duckling?

    Hi lovely people! I hatched out a Muscovy duckling last week, and he appears to be a little lopsided? He’s perfectly happy and healthy and eats like tomorrow will never come, so it doesn’t seem to affect him that way. He is however a bit slower than his sister and because he tilts to the left...

    There is something weird going on with my muscovy duck.

    Today I noticed that my female muscovy has somethin wrong with either her vagina or bottom. I picked her up and just managed to get a couple of photos of it but I can't find much online about it. She is acting normal as if nothing is wrong. I do have a male muscovy could she just be overmated?

    What color would you call my Muscovy ducks?

    Hoping someone can confirm what I believe these colors to be. I was told by the person I purchased them from that the top pictured duck is a blue, the Drake is a lavender and the other duck is also a blue. Is this correct? If allowed to have ducklings, what colors could I expect? Thanks for any...

    Muscovy housing?!?

    We have 3 Muscovy (1 drake and 2 ducks) we just acquired last weekend. They are about 5 months old. We built a hoop coop for them and live in Florida. Should we just build a roost or should I build a house for them as well? The hoop coop has a wire floor to keep predators out as we have coyote...

    Is it okay to add a pair of ducks to a chicken flock?

    Hi there. I was thinking of getting a mated pair of ducks possibly a muscovy pair because I heard they are a quieter breed and we have neighbors on each side of our fence. So we don't want a loud duck breed. Thing is we already have about 8 hens and 1 rooster. I was wondering would it be okay to...
