    I saw these ducks at a public pond in Dahlonega Georgia. They were on the large side, probably 10 pounds. Coloring was green black white and chestnut. They had blue eyes. Pretty ducks.

    At the same pond there was a crested duck as well. Unusual. I though crested were domesticated ducks, not wild?

    They look like domestic mixes to me.

    I'm pretty sure those are muscovy hybrids. Very pretty!

    They were beautiful and somewhat sociable.

    Most likely some one dropped them off there or they were hatched there by some drop offs. since they are domesticated. I rescued 3 Scovy mixes from our river once years ago that had that beautiful rust color on them, all 3 drakes someone didn't want any more. Are you thinking about making friends and taking them home?

    They look like mixed domestic ducks. If they're really friendly, then they might be recent drop offs.

    I would love to and would consider it!! Unfortunately I am working on getting a farm of my own. I am launching a KICKSTARTER Campaign in a couple days to raise money!! I designed a silly duck calendar I am trying to offer my backers.

    This is what the front of the calendar will look like.

    Here is the details of the project launching soon. I hope to get everyone's support. I already have Metzer Farms wanting to list it on their Facebook site.

    I also produced a silly duck video you can watch thru the link. I hope you enjoy my story!
