    I wanted to get muscovies because I think they're beautiful and so unique compared to all of the other Duck breeds. I got 3 but sadly they all ended up being drakes so they are no longer with me [​IMG]

    Here are just a few pictures of them. I have tons of pics!

    They were awesome and they loved me. Whenever they would see me they would run to me wagging their tails and hissing at me. Adorable little guys.

    They did start snapping at my little fur-baby and chasing him around as you can see in this last picture.

    I hope to add at least 1 or 2 females to my flock of Welsh Harlequin ducks as i really do have a great appreciation for this amazingly unique breed of ducks.

    I got them because someone gave me a drake, then I had to get him a girlfriend and before I knew it I had a bunch!

    Top picture is one of "The twins" Bottom is 4 of the 5 headed out to bother the neighbors :) We rescued 6 (lost one to a snapper) in the spring from a farmer who was getting over run by ducklings. We love watching them and their silly antics. They have free range of our yard and a large natural pond. We will be herding them into a coop in the next week for the winter. Their names are Elliot, #5 (hes always last) The Twins and Lucy.
