    How old is he? I had a muscovy that looked just like that but eventually the brown turned to jet black.

    he is about 6 months old.... I seen a picture on the net off a duckling that looked exactly like him when he first hatched, that said it was a brown morph? he doesn't look black to me compared to other duckling with black in them! his chest is dappled with a caramel brown I hope he doesn't loose that!
