    These ducklings will come from my personal pet Muscovy's. I have had Muscovy's for over 10 years now. I currently have 12 females laying on clutches of 10+ eggs each due to hatch in August.I also have 4 incubators filled with 41 Muscovy eggs each due to hatch mid- September! They are fed Purina Organic Layer Crumbles. It is made with non-GMO ingredients that have been grown without the use of pesticides and fertilizers.
    I let them free range all day and lock them up in their aviary at night.
    They always have fresh water and well ventilated coops.
