    Icey ducks

    we’ve got negative temperatures today. My ducks free range during the day, I waited until after noon to let them out but it’s still negative. Some of them went ahead and decided to take a bath in their water dishes and now have little ice sickles all over them. They’re locked up for the night...

    Muscovy feeding, care, and bullying questions

    Aloha. I free range five hens of different varieties in my backyard, and about 5 months ago my children convinced me to get a pair of Muskovy ducklings. I haven’t yet figured out how people free feed their birds. The minute my birds step away from the feeder, at least 20 wild birds swoop in...

    Muscovy hiding eggs!

    One of my female Muscovy has been laying eggs for a few weeks now. She was hatched in May of 2020. I guess she got tired of me taking all the eggs (it’s winter time and I really don’t want babies), now she’s found a hole in the top of a very tall dead tree. She goes up there every morning, and I...

    Can Muscovy hens raise other birds?

    Hello! I am thinking about adding another bird or two to my flock, but I am curious of a couple things. Currently I have 3 Muscovy hens that should start laying soon. I was thinking about either getting 1 more Muscovy, or maybe 2 of a different type of duck that isn't too loud(I have neighbors)...

    Muscovy Duck weird stomach bumps

    I posted about my Muscovy molting a couple weeks ago, but I can’t find that thread. We adopted her. She couldn’t walk well and we assumed she was over weight and her legs were weak from her previous living conditions. She has since lost weight and moves and runs well. I noticed though, a couple...

    New Muscovy.

    My husband went and picked 4 new adult Muscovy hens up today for our male and the person we got them from threw this little guy/gal in for free. It was outside with the others but it’s not fully feathered yet so I’m not comfortable keeping it outside with the big birds. Will it be okay inside...

    Muscovy Losing Feathers + Lethargic

    Hey all! To start, yes, I know Muscovy are not technically ducks. Now that that’s out of the way lol.... I am a chicken person, never owned water fowl. A friend at our local animal shelter reached out because they had a Muscovy that was dumped at a local park. She is unbelievably sweet and...

    Duck ratios and mixing flocks

    First post, so please bear with me. A few weeks back after much research I finally jumped into the backyard fowl and got 5 Muscovy who are now 8 weeks old. These are a complete first for me, I've never had ducks or chickens before. As nature would have it I ended up with three drakes and two...

    Muscovy pouncing? Body slamming? other Muscovys and me

    I have young muscovys who when they get pet by me or its like a high energy moment, they start like 'vibrating' or 'shaking' their head before like pouncing at me or or other ducks.

    Spraying Muscovy eggs

    First time egg mama here, I’m such a worrier and I’ve had tons of questions! I read spraying Muscovy eggs after day 10 is good for them. So, lacking a spray bottle at home, I rinsed out a hair detangler bottle and sprayed the eggs once each. I didn’t realize until after it still smelled a bit...
