    What color is this little guy? He is the only one I have this color:

    Also I LOVE the patterning on this one - it's the biggest guy I have of the babies - just a big fattie! (the one in back). Would s/he be a barred?

    I love the barred looking one!

    I am also curious about the light brown one. I have one baby (1 week or so old) that is that color. I'm new to this breed so I'm also wondering what he/she will look like!

    His entire chest and belly are solid white - I am fairly sure it's a he but maybe not.

    Here is another unusual one. Blue upper part of body and chocolate pied on the underneath and neck.

    The white ones all have really pretty blue eyes:

    I would call that first baby a chocolate. If I am wrong, then i have been really really wrong- I hatched out nine the same color and sold them as chocolate. I have two now that look identical with mama Muscovy.

    The feathers are just coming in and they are much darker than the chocolate brown fuzz.

    I will eventually be selling off a bunch of these when they mature and it will be hard to decided which ones to keep [​IMG] I think they are all so pretty/handsome.

    I'm not really fond of the white BUT they all have the prettiest eyes.
