    No hormones, no antibiotics, free range, and pasture raised.
    Show quality, good breeders, good mothers, and lay a lot of eggs. All are hatched and raised here by us.

    Please understand that we are not responsible for your hatching rate. You can check the eggs when you get them, too. There are too many factors in the hatching process which we can not control.The hatching rate depends of your incubating experience.

    Thank you. On my website for 6 eggs is $14.00 and for 12 or 24 eggs is $ 19.00 to fit them in medium and large flat rate boxes, 1-3 days delivery.

    Ebay took down all listings from people that sells Muscovy eggs and they let only a few favorites to sell. Their reason was that is illegal and they are protected. They are to lazy to research and see that the wild Muscovy (Cairina Moschata) is protected and not the domestic Muscovy (Cairina Moschata Domestica) which is not and everybody has. They are different as colors, body, flying, everything. Now I write the scientific name in my ebay listings in order for them to see the difference, let us alone, and treat everybody the same under the same rules/policies ; not discriminate.

    For everybody who owns Muscovy:
    This is from Q&A from https://www.fws.gov:
    You do not need a waterfowl sale and disposal permit or other Federal
    permit to raise and sell muscovy ducks. Muscovy ducks are now protected
    under the MBTA due to natural range expansion from Mexico into the
    United States. Although we amended the regulations at 50 CFR 21.14 and
    21.25 to restrict possession and sale of muscovy ducks, we intend to
    revise those regulations. Therefore, we are not issuing permits or
    restricting sale, purchase, or possession of muscovy ducks at this time.
    More information is available at http://www.fws.gov/migratorybirds
    (scroll to 50 CFR 21.54 Muscovy Duck).

    I was selling Muscovy Hatching Eggs as well! Ebay is actually trying to stop all hatching egg selling. Reason for is because too many people making complaints and requesting refunds for eggs not developing, cracked, ect. I stopped using ebay and now use BYC! Best place ever and very extremely nice people! Glad you joined us!

    So they give different reasons to people. When I called them they gave me the "illegal" reason. I have 100% positive feedback, not one return, broken eggs, or complains. Therefore, they had to find another lie. Also, they do not even look at seller's dashboard or the person which revises the listings in that shift chooses the ones she/he likes.
    This is what I wrote now in all my Muscovy listing:
    fertile domestic muscovies duck eggs for hatching - Cairina Moschata Domestica

    They are domestic muscovies ducks (Cairina Moschata Domestica) not the wild migratory muscovy (Cairina Moschata) which are protected.
    Conservation status of Cairina Moschata Domestica = Domesticated Muscovy ducks are common and widespread. They are not considered threatened currently.
    Domesticated Muscovy ducks are common and widespread. Feral populations now live in areas outside of their native range. They are not considered threatened currently.
    Domestic varieties:Black, Blue, Chocolate, Pied (white with any color mixed), White, Lavender,Bronze, Ripple, and many more pastel colors.
