    Here are two of my Muscovy sisters, sharing a nest. When these two get off, to eat, drink, get in the pool, two others will go in and sit on the nest to keep the eggs warm. It's so sweet. There are at least 4 girls laying in the nest.

    This is Caramel & Kahlua.

    Here is one of the daddy's. This is Valentino aka "Puppy". He follows me around my place, "barking" and wagging his tail. He's 4 months old and weighs 16.4 lbs. We measured his neck today. It's 8.5 inches around. HUGE!! And he's still a baby! LOL

    Puppy hasn't tried to jump into my arms.....yet! My grandson went out and tried to put those claw protectors that you use on dogs and cats, on the Muscovy's last week because of their claws are so sharp! He was in the pen with them and got scratched up. Next thing I knew, my drakes had pink claw protectors on. ROFL!!!

    I am so darn thrilled with my Scovy's! I have to thank all you Muscovy keepers for getting me interested in them. They just have so much personality, I adore them!!

    Awww your ducks are all so beautiful!!
    I have one Muscovy duckling a month old and that little booger has captured my heart big time. I can't get over how calm he/she is when I pick him/her up, especially compared to my Pekins and Mallards at that age.

    I wanna see those claw thingies too LOL

    Wait a minute, Puppy is 4 months old and is a daddy.

    I have scovies and I thought they didn't get fertile till they were 6-7 months. Is this why my Mommy and Snow White have started to lay again. The Drakeletes are now 13 weeks, I think.

    I Really like your chocolates. Actually the first chocolates I really like. Are you selling eggs from your girls. Later that is.
