    Do you think she might have an idea of what this duckling would look like as an adult? The markings are so unique, I just love it!

    I'm sure she would love to tell you but her internet has been giving her problems. I will text her the picture and give her your message.

    Could you all give some tips on what to look for to identify a Muscovy duckling?

    I had a clutch of rouen and possibly muscovy eggs hatch. Reason I ask, is I never saw my muscovies get bred when free ranging with my other male ducks. So I'm curious if any hatched are muscovy.
