    Hey all! Just wanted to share a pic of our first six Muscovy ducklings. These hatched today and more on the way. So exciting!

    Two more hatched out (8 total now) and still more peeping in the incubator. Fingers crossed!

    They are doing great in the outdoor brooder. All are very active and enjoying the heat of summer along with their MHP!

    These are our first Muscovies. The plan is to enjoy them as we do all ducks - entertainment, eggs, and meat. We prefer breeds that will hatch and raise their own which drew us to Muscovies from our research.
