Thank you! Sorry for not replying. Muscovies are wonderful and can have such pretty colors. I was bummed when I lost both my white baby and chocolate baby this clutch, but these two survivors make up for the loss in their great personalities. Blue eyes are gorgeous, and I was beyond thrilled when I realized a hen from Aspen's last clutch had blue eyes. I'm glad this big handsome boy has them, too--can't wait for him to grow up.My goodness! Such beautiful babies. I am in love with mama Aspen. She is absolutely stunning! I need to add some of these to my flock ASAP. My Pekin and Jumbo Pekins have blue eyes and I love it! I know it's normal with Pekins but I still find it heart warming to look into those blue eyes. I have enjoyed reading through this post
They really are! And quite striking against those red carnuncles. Sorry for failing to update ya'll lately. I'll give some updated pictures tonight.My gander has blue eyes I should have named him Frank. I had 3 Muscovy all white with blue eyes they are gorgeous aren’t they such a pretty blue!!
I feel like she's sitting all day. She'd usually come by a couple of times a day, but now she's coming by once, yesterday not at all.I have eggs that were in the refrigerator that are working towards hatching that had been in there at least two weeks minimum. Is she sitting on them most of the day already? Or partially?
they sure are cute.My muscovy duck has three babies, and by now they're 2 weeks old, probably closer to 3. One of them is twice the size of the other two, I mean, it's very visible difference. I know at this age, you can't say for certain what gender your duck is until they get older and start developing traits that we know as drake or hen. I get that sometimes, you think one is male or female, but then they surprise you. But with this little guy SO big, I wasn't sure if it was possible to be sure if it will definitely be a drake, or if there's still a high chance it's just a fast-growing hen.
What are people's thoughts and experiences? I'm still fairly new to ducks, this starting my third year with them, and I'm very curious about this topic seeing I'm experiencing it. Thanks to anyone who replies!
Sorry if it's hard to tell from my pictures.
