A friend actually inspired me to post this, following a discussion of small-sized ducks. Does anyone have any information on any breeds that have been developed of Muscovy Ducks? I know that there is a French/European white meat production strain, as well as the various color varieties. I would like to find out if there are any other breeds, such as a bantam breed (cute little dragon ducks!), a line selected for better egg laying, or any Latin American 'land race' breeds. While I think 'Scovies are excellent ducks just the way they are (awesome foragers, quiet birds, a great bird for rural households and what other breed of domestic bird can set on seventeen eggs, two golf balls and a lightbulb and hatch out 21 ducklings?) as I am getting more into these birds I am wondering what sort of breeding projects have been tried. Any information would be great, including failed experiments.
