    Ok, I have decided to take the great Muscovy plunge! [​IMG]

    The trouble is...I live in northern Cali and cannot find any to save my life! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am also having trouble finding a place that sells them. (drooling idiot)

    Does anyone have an suggestions for me? [​IMG] I would like a trio, don't care about color...will be happy with anything. Checked the for sale forum area and crickets were chirping in there too. Sigh. Am I doomed to be Muscovyless? [​IMG]

    Quote:JM hatchery will only sell 15...none of my friends has any interest in the "extras" and I really only want a trio.

    SO...if anyone is in the Redding Ca area and hears anything about anyone wanting to "share" their muscovys [​IMG], let me know!!!

    There's a lady in Oroville that has Muscovy eggs and ducklings from time to time. You can find her ads for Button Quail on craigslist, phone number starts with 282.

    I hear that some areas restrict selling Muscovies, so that could be why you're having trouble finding them in your local area.

    I know that doesn't help your cause, though.
