    I got 5 Muscovy about 3 weeks ago. I'm not 100% about age as I thought I was told that they were 4 weeks when I got them but now having a 4 week old Muscovy, I think they were more like 6-8 weeks then.
    I only had Runners before and I have been doing little other than watch them since they arrived. I'm not used to the waddling and they are so funny. I am still getting used to their behavior the tail wagging and neck bobbing. I am SO not used to the quiet. My runners would quack and quack until I let them out of the run in the morning. My neighbors are probably loving this.

    I can't believe how quickly they've grown. Still not sure about sex because I think they were a mixed group (they had a number of Muscovy available not all from the same hatch).

    They are almost done losing their fuzz and are just hilarious. They don't like to leave the duck run though.
