    I have a huge obsession with Muscovy ducks and turkeys. [​IMG] Tell me there's nothing seriously wrong with me mentally!!

    We took our puppy to the vet today and they have a bunch of Muscovies and geese and chickens and a turkey (all in pens in which I did not walk, and I didn't touch any, so no cross-contamination. [​IMG]). The Muscovies are SO AMAZING !! Nobody else in my family sees their enormous attraction.... There were whites and pied. And they were just too adorable... The two geese were a Brown Chinese and a White Chinese. The turkey was a Giant White tom. He was awesome too -- except his feathers looked a bit wacky as he was molting.

    Now... Please reassure me that I'm not crazy!! I am almost desperate for Muscovies... [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, the chickens were a couple Production Reds, a Dark Brahma (I've come to the conclusion that Brahmas and mud don't mix), an EE, and another that was the same color as the Dark Brahma but had yellow featherless legs and a straight comb. Not sure on her breed...

    You are not crazy. I have had about 150 at one time, so I understand the obsession.
    And u need more because u just do. Is that reason enough? [​IMG]
