    yes both legs seem the same, I have them since the beg of April when they were ducklings, one of them seems to be interested in the nesting box lately. Do you think they may start laying soon??

    Maybe or they may wait till spring, Muscovy's are seasonal layers so you may not get eggs till next year. Just about all of mine have quit laying and I have 5 brooding on nothing.
