    One of my Muscovies had gray, wrinkly caruncles this morning. He's also very light and weak, poor boy. Does anyone know a cause, or a cure, or have advice? It wasn't winter weather.

    Sounds perhaps anemic? I don't have Muscovies. I would bring him in, get him in a lukewarm tub, take a close look, get him on some poultry vitamins with electrolytes and probiotics. He may have had an infection. Ducks do not let us know early on when they are sick.

    Here - I think this is what you are looking for

    Get him some greens and dog or cat food.
