    Hey all.
    Went out to feed the duckies this morning, and heard, yep, you guessed it. Baby ducks peeping. I lifted the lid of the house, and there are 7 baby Muscovies under a very protective momma. Isn't it a little late????? What the heck am I going to do with these babies at this time of the year????
    I thought Muscovies stopped laying once the weather started getting cooler?

    I have 7! AAACCCKKK! Somehow, it just seems to be too late for them to be having babies!
    Anyone want some 'Scovies? [​IMG]
