    Ill go get pics in a sec but guess what?! I got TEN instead of 6!!!!!!!!!! They are extremely docile. I mean they are almost TOO docile. They dont even get up that much, just sit around. Ill get some pictures of them in their temp pen and then tomorrow ill get some of them in the grass.

    Ok yall, Im a little worried. They are about three weeks old and they arent being as active as is healthy. They have been in a pen that is 75% water and the rest was fake rock and like a blue tarp liner.

    I think something is wrong with their feet / knees. Could it just be that they havent had room to walk or???

    [​IMG] Congrats, Goat-walker!
    You might want to give them either Avia Charge or vitamins in their water for awhile and keep an eye on them. It could be they haven't had the proper feed & then again it could be that they just haven't had the opportunity to run around so are not used to it. Note: Another thread was comparing French white Muscovy, bought at a hatchery, which are bred to grow up to 12lbs in 12 weeks for meat to our slower maturing Scovies and they found that the French whites were a lot less active. Think Cornish X meat birds to regular dual purpose. IF these are French white Scovies, their natural tendancy will be to move less to conserve energy and so grow bigger faster.

    wow! that is very interesting!

    sounds like vitamins are always a good thing and good food. are they warm enough?
