    Hi all!
    This is my first time owning muscovies. I have noticed that this guy looks different. Do you think he is a mule? And mules are sterile correct?

    This is Shiloh, he is the most friendly of my Muscovy. I am unsure about the pattern that is on his chest....

    I think that it’s just a Muscovy. And yes mules are sterile. He is very beautiful muscovy. The pattern on his chest is just juvenile lacing something most birds get.
    This is a pic of my mule Sumo:

    It looks like a very pretty muscovy. :love
    Muscovies come in lots of varieties.
    Check out this image from a search, they have the same chest pattern (although they are chocolate ripples).
