My blue muscovy has a couple of black/green feathers. I thought that was interesting. (I'm new to ducks). It reminds me of how a roan horse grows solid hair in areas where the skin has been cut/bitten/etc. Is that common for blue ducks to do like that?

This came up after his molt. He was one of the younger drakes at the place I got him, so he was picked on by the older drakes. I think the green feathers are growing in where he was attacked by the drakes. That's what I am guessing anyway.

That is him in the avatar. He still has his flight feathers left to grow in. He is a friendly drake and will even let us pet him while he is eating. I know the gypsy markings aren't right for shows, but I think it is pretty. I don't know why some aren't bred for the black. They could look like swans. Or . . . black with red outlining. I guess that would be a topic for another thread though. :)

Here he is with his girls.
