    my friend just gave me 2 scovy ducklings but i'm curious about something. both his adult muscovies are white and black and all the ducklings are solid yellow. the scovies i've hatched have all been blackish and yellow as babies. he has 2 mallard drakes but she started laying within a couple days of him bringing her home so the first eggs wouldnt have been by the mallards, right? i dont care if i have mallard/muscovy hybrids but im just curious. also, some of them have yellow bills and some real dark bills

    I have Muscovy babies as well. Some are yellow and brown...some are all brown....some with pink bills, some with dark bills...a few have black legs, and a few have light legs. They are such a versatile breed. Its great to watch them grow up, and see just how they will turn out. Good luck with your babies.....got pics??
