    I've decide that I would like to add some Muscovy ducks into our family. However I live in Colorado and haven't been able to find a single place to get any Muscovys from. So I was wondering where everyone has gotten their ducks so I have some places to check. Thanks in advance!

    Do you want to buy from a local breeder, or would you be comfortable mail-ordering?

    Have you posted your question on the Where Am I Where Are You forum? It is organized by location.

    You might be able to find hatching eggs - or you could check around for local rescue resources, including veterinary offices and animal shelters. They show up there sometimes.

    That's a good idea I didn't even think of asking in that forum. I am nervous to hatch Muscovy eggs as I've never hatched eggs before and I read that Muscovy eggs are the hardest duck eggs to hatch. I also didn't think of checking a shelter that's a great idea! Thank you so much
