    Finally! :)

    From left to right:
    Roscoe, chocolate Muscovy duck
    Boogie, chocolate atipico Muscovy juvenile
    Howie, rescued Pekin mix duck
    Frankie, buff Muscovy drakelet
    Daphne, blue fawn Muscovy duck
    Bleu, blue magpie Muscovy duck
    All hatched 2019


    Howie started laying about three weeks ago, and one of my Muscovy girls layed for me this morning for the first time (different shell, much smaller egg). If you couldn't guess from their names, we're not very good at identifying duck genders yet! :confused:

    Thank you x2! I love sitting out in the yard and watching them do their thing. They're a happy little crew.

    I love your avatar. I'm obsessed with bald eagles. I watch all the cams all over the country. My fave couple is out of Big Bear; Shadow and Jackie.

    Thank you so much! I think they're pretty awesome, but I'm a little biased.

    Frankie and Boogie decided now was a good time for their teenage molt, and the back yard looks like a terrible pillow fight happened, lol. But it's all a part of growing up. Frankie's voice kinda goes between the peep and the panting sound right now, and he's as irritated by it as any teenaged boy. Don't tell him, but I think it's cute. ;)
