    Hello!!
    Finally getting around to seeing this post from you. Looks like we have a similar love of guineas and Muscovy ducks. I have a pair of dark purple and a buff Don pair, they were hatched last June so they don't know they are pairs yet. Several of my pretty ones do not have mates so they are in a coop together. I am interested in pairing some that don't have mates. I have a male that is a light purple iridescent not sure what he is. One cream color male two pied pearl hens, after reading your stories on your site I feel I am starting out like you did. I guess I should just get a mix from you and go from there. I do not like the ones with bald necks, they are hard to love.. look like vultures to me.
    I have gotten so many eggs on ebay with a bunch of disappointment. The eggs that hatch from here do good but not shipped ones. I can not survive another low hatch of Muscovy eggs or guinea eggs. I am wondering how far you are from me and if I can come there after much council and do a pick up?
    I currently have 3 little Muscovy ducklings 3 & 4 days old and one adult in the yard. My help helped themselves to my last hatch, said there was a fox but only the pretty ones were eaten, very strange..No feathers anywhere, nothing weird on my cameras except they would periodically run off camera and less would return. I have been home from cross country truck driving for a month and none have been lost. I heard later my help was at the sale barn every weekend I was gone.. Needless to say I have to start from scratch. So.. if you are willing I need some ducklings or eggs from Muscovy's too.. I do not want them on a plane ride here as the air pressure does weird stuff to the air sac so I would rather come meet you somewhere. Or come to your place.
    Let me know if you are ready to call the phyc ward on me or if any of this made sense and whether or not you can help.
    Thanks,
    Carole
