    just wondering what those two big ducks are (the white one and blackish white)? i'm pretty sure the white one is a pekin, but i'm not so sure about the other one. these are ducks i raised when i was in egypt a couple years ago. also, those other ducks are NOT muscovies. they are a much smaller type of muscovies found only in egypt (locally referred to as morgan or sudani). although they may seem like only a few weeks in this picture, they are actually about 2.5 months.
