    I've wanted muscovys forever, but I can't seem to find any. When I do they are the typical black and white. That's not all bad, but I also really want ducklings so I can raise them myself. Will anyone have any in the spring like early may-june? I live in New Jersey, attend college in south jersey and live in north jersey. Shipping would also be an option if it's not like $50.

    Thanks!

    I have muscovys too. They are the solid colored not the pied. Spring I should have lavender, blue, brown, dark ripple and black colors. Right now my one black is hatching out some. [​IMG]

    Awesome guys! I'll have to write down your names!

    Where is Shippenburg, PA? How far from NJ? If it's not too far, I could drive which would be so much cheaper than shipping.

    Keep me updated!

    You can also try putting yourt info in the "homes available" section of the duck rescue network. That way if someone in your are needs to rehome some muscovys they will cotnact you.

    There is an adoptino board for ducks needign homes as well. Please see my signature for links.

    Yeah, I am actually a part of the duck rescue network and I get the e-mails regurlarly. I've seen a few I would be interested in, but I can't take in any more while I'm here at college:(

    Thanks for all the replies though! Be sure to keep me updated!
