    Herding 22 Muscovy Ducklings to bed! I just swapped a friend 2 drakes for 6 babies(including 3 silvers!!) today so that brings my full count up to 22! [​IMG] I must be crazy...

    You can bet your tail feathers they will be getting a new, bigger brooder built for them asap!

    They're all Pure Muscovy. Most are from my flock but i just picked up 6 babies yesterday from a friend of mine. she also has only Muscovies because she is totally against crossbreeding.

    There is so many colors in there!

    Chocolate
    Blacks
    Blues
    Blue Fawn
    Silvers (3)
    Self Blue (3)
    Lilac

    The Silvers & Lilac came from my friends flock. I went to get the silvers and i let my sister pick out 3 more babies so she got 2 blues and 1 lilac. I am super excited for the silvers since i recently lost my favorite silver hen to a predator. Our Blue Fawn hen gave us some of the strngest marked babies this year, but they're just Adorable!
