    I have 17 muscovy ducklings so far. From one Momma. They're about 6 weeks old....13 of them are drakes. [​IMG]

    The drakes are so obvious by 1month old, their size is a dead giveaway, lol... they just grow so fast!

    I don't even know how many babies I have had so far, but I am excited for more. I have been dealing with predator issues and have been really bad about keeping track of everyone. I currently have 9 in the outside brooder & 9 in the indoor brooder though. about 4-5 more girls on nests [​IMG]
