    I walked in the front door this morning to see MY NAME (!) on a HUGE "box" in the floor next to the tree. Of course this was the first one to be opened...while i was opening it i heard a "cerrrooo, wisper, wisper" (EEK!!! it's a DUCK!)

    well i pulled the blanket-wrapping up and there sat 4 Muscovies!!
    2 blue
    1 black
    1 chocolate

    I thought, "Wait a minute...I remember these guys!"

    They were 4 from this terrible farm were the lady wasnt feeding her birds (i posted about a while back). I found out that the day after my sister & i went to pick up my new girls, she had went back and bought 5, all along i thoguht she had only bought the one hen she brought home that day!!

    They have been at my mothers for nearly 3 weeks and i DIDNT EVEN KNOW IT!?! I am just not sure how i missed that!

    I'm so happy though, they went right in with everyone else just a while ago. they're doing good. there was a little bit of 'excitement' for a few minutes but they calmed down. They can climb the ramp like pro's too, it was so cute. [​IMG]

    I am not sure what their age is, my other girls from the same place are around 6months now, but these guys have bigger curuncles.
    I aso think there might be 2 boys in there, even though she bought them as hens...im just glad she got them out of there.

    So whatta you all think? [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I have no idea on what sexes they are yet.

    Yeah, their tails look strange because the previous owner totally hacked their wings off. I hate it and can't wait until they grow back.

    I've NEVER seen a clipping that looked like this!

    Panda is a total *Cutie*, I've only had one other Scovy that was "stripey" like Panda but I had to rehome him earlier this year. I'm excited to find out what sexes they are(i'm sure it wont take long) and then later on...the babies!!

    Finley, the blue-funky one does have black claws, isn't that wierd?? I noticed it when we put them in the pen. They're all scared to death of being touched. i think they were just really mistreated and ignored a lot at their old home.

    2 of the first 3 girls we got are total babies though.
