Is anyone working on this? I was thinking about it over the winter.
Dont think its possible but could be wrong. Breed a muscovy to anything you get a mule that cant produce.
I was thinking about breeding the smallest ones I could find and then keep breeding to the smallest. Surely over time, I would end up with mostly small ones?
I think it would take years and years, but sure. Isn't that how they got chihuahuas out of wolves? ;D
Yea, something like that. Hopefully mine would have a better temperament, LOL.
i have read that someone is working on them in australia but thats all i know. i have an egg being sat on about the size of a large grape here, tiny, if by some fluke it hatches the duckling would most definatley be super bantam.
Well, they have extra-large Muscovies. Why not breed them to be a lot smaller?
I would be amazed if that egg hatched! You really need to keep up updated! :O
I might try the Muscovy breeding this year. Can always eat the culls, LOL.
there's nothing wrong with eating the culls! my freezer is looking good at the moment i'd be amazed if the super mini egg hatched too, it'd take a whole lot of skill on mums behalf and since she has stuffed up her last two clutches of eggs ,and would have been sold if she didnt lay again so quick, i doubt it very much.
I'm curious, why would you want a smaller version? One of the reasons i chose the breed was for it's larger size, smaller breeds wouldn't be as suitable for here. Trying to understand the reasoning, as there are many smaller breeds out there, so what would be the benefits to sizing down a relatively larger breed.
