    I'm gonna get straight to the point with this one. Does anyone know if Muscovy ducks are showable at 4-H fairs? I know, I know, dumb question. But I have NEVER in all my years at our 4-H fair seen even one Muscovy duck being shown.

    Also, I know that our 4-H fair (not sure if they all have the same rules or not) has a special category for showing mixed breed chickens, called Barnyard Classic i believe. This is awesome, but do they allow mixed breed ducks??? It seems like it's only chickens, I'm not sure. This is not related to the Muscovies, but I'm curious...

    They are at larger ones. Some smaller shows/fair may not have Waterfowl inculuded in their show though.

    ;] I have been through 10 years of 4-H (this is my last) and I frequently see Ducks, Geese, and Guineas shown.

    They should have a specific heavy weight duck breed class for muscovies.
