    I have two white muscovy ducklings, approx. 9 weeks old and they have blue eyes. They are not totally white, but almost. THey have black caps on their heads and a couple of spots on their necks. I believe they are both drakelets. If so, I will probably have to find a home for them. PET HOME, not to eat! I already have three drakes and cannot have anymore, due to ratio problems.

    Anyway, they are beautiful little ducks. I was just wondering how common it is that they have blue eyes and if their eyes will change eventually?

    Thanks!

    Yes, white muscovies will have blue eyes--generally.

    Black/dark will have brown eyes.............
