    Are your male Muscovy's always white like that? because my male doesn't like to take bathes and looks dirty all the time except after a molt,just wondering if he is normal or not[​IMG]

    Mine normally look like that, I 'make' them want to take a bath by spraying them with a hose when I clean their pools out. It makes them want to take a bath and clean themselves.

    Thanks! what he does is take fake bathes [​IMG] he dips down like he is flinging water on himself but he is in the grass! have any of you heard of this behavior before? so I have to place him in the water and splash water on him.

    By the way Ryan sorry for asking questions on your thread but your pretty white ducks started it [​IMG]

    WOW Ryan! [​IMG] You've got a lovely bunch of ducks there! Look at all those caruncles on their faces!!! Mine look like "naked" comparing to yours! [​IMG]

    I'd love to see your female muscovies when you have time to upload some pics! [​IMG] Whenever I spray mine wih the hose and make it look like it's raining they stand still like they are numb. [​IMG]

    welcome back Ryan, been for ever! The new ducks are lovely, nice to see a true example of a Rouen, they arent very common in pictures around here.

    They arent very common anywhere! Nor are true Pekins and Muscovys. They arent for everyone, but I sure enjoy them. You cant tell from the photos, but the Pekins are HUGE!
