    200 already!!! WOW.. that sure is alot what are plans for so many ducklings??

    Just one for me... She was a surprise in a mixed dozen eggs I was given by a lady when I bought 2 young ducks. It was interesting for me as I havent kept scovies since I was a teenager growing up on a farm. She sure was cute- but those claws sure can be sharp too!!
  3. Hmmmm, 44 and I believe about 30 being brooded under 2 Scovy hens right now. That will be it for the year and about a third to half as many as last year..... which was my plan. Next year I may allow even less to hatch out depending on the final.... FINAL FWS ruling on keeping and breeding Scovies and the market.

    ive had three hatches that total to 63 [​IMG]
  6. Hi! I've hatched no Moscovy ducklings --- *0*.
    I'm excited that I have 11 Muscovy youngsters that might lead to breeding next year.
    They are so different from my Pekin/Swedish/Magpie youngsters, I'm amazed. These Muscovy youngsters are engaging and friendly.
    But anyway...
    Yaaay for hatching over 200 new 'lings. That's a lot of new ducklings coming into the world.
    Do you let the mothers raise them and to what age? (or do you have a giant space and they all swim arond happily together?)
