    i don't believe my eggs are going to hatch so I am looking for at most 4 muscovies, any color is fine. I am able to pick up within a reasonable distance of my home let me know if anyone has any available. TIA I have 4 days off this week so a nice road trip would be fun:)

    Anyone? Someone has gotta have a few

    Well if you're looking for a road trip there is an add in the local paper here for a woman selling muscovy ducks and ducklings. I called her today and found out she is in Crivitz, WI. That's north of Green Bay, if that helps. She has quite a lot of adults and ducklings to sell. I'm going to head out there tomorrow myself to pick some up for my own flock. Here is the link to the ad.

    Hope that helps.

    We currently have 31 muscovy ducklings, some spring hatch, and adults for sale.
    We are a bit of a drive from Iowa too though. We are on the east side of Illinois.

    I am also hoping to get some. I saw some at a IA swap meet in May but have not seen any since then. I have 5 eggs in the bator that I hope hatch. I got my eggs sent from NY state. I might go to the Kankakee, IL swap meet. I've never been there before but I heard it has everything you can wish for but I'm not sure how far of a drive that would be for you. It's gonna be a 4 hour drive for us if we do get to go.

    I would love to go to the Kankakee swap but it is 6-7hr drive for me and that is just a little too far:( I pitched the eggs today,very sad to do it but they were not going to hatch. Good luck with yours

    We live 5 miles south of where the Kankakee swap is held. We will be taking all the muscovies we have for sale to the Kankakee swap in September in case any of you make it to the swap.
