    I have a beautiful little flock of Muscovy ducks and I'm wondering what color these girls are for sure. From what I've seen online, I'm thinking lavender. 20180309_065023.jpg 20180314_120822.jpg 20180314_120818.jpg 20180309_065011.jpg

    They look like they may be blues. You have some very nice scovy ducks

    Thank you! They are my first Muscovies and I just love them. They are so friendly and love to be around people. I collected and set 21 eggs in the incubator. I would love to let them hatch on their own, but my pigs steal the eggs. I have to stand guard over them while they are laying! Lol

    Here’s a pic I found of a pied blue Muscovy:

    Yes, the pigs keep us hopping!

    I thought blue too but in lower light some feathers have a champagne look to them. Hopefully I can get some better pictures later.

    Actually they are probably lavender, I just hadn’t heard of that colour in a while. Just done a search it’s most likely what they are.

    They are really beautiful and not exactly like anything I found on google. Let's hope I can hatch some babies. I'm wondering what I'll get out of chocolate & lavender. Wish me luck!
