    I was lucky, colors started showing up in my black and whites, but I was crossing brother and sister to get them, now I have no drake.

    I had planned to get one last summer but we had the bird flu in our state, maybe this year. I would take one of yours, too bad male muscovy are too heavy to fly any distance.

    My only chocolate died from egg laying trouble, that color isn't easy to find around here. You have some gorgeous Scovy's too .. as does oldhenlikesdogs, I'd love some Lavenders.

    I love this breed by far the best duck breed. Good eggs, beautiful, friendly(if they imprinted on you) and the funniest ducks ever. I recently got two in August and they have been the best of friends, they fight over who gets to sit in my lap!!!!! They are also very curious and are willing to fly to new heights.
    [​IMG]this was our last coop but as you can see it was terrible they also jumped out of it a lot
    [​IMG]this is them when they were babies falling alseep
