    We just got 6 muscovy ducklings! to add to our craze of birds, but we've had a bad fly problem around, and have heard that muscovy help with flies.... so far the fly tape worked ok, but hopefully these will help too. If not, that's ok, they're still cute!!!

    I have Chocloate Muscovy eggs in my incubator right now and I can't wait til they hatch. I think Muscovies are the cutest ducklings. I think I heard something about them being real good buggers, but most ducks are anyway.

    Yes, it is the law of the BYC duck forum that if you mention ducklings or anything cute, you must post photos. [​IMG]

    Oh man, I am so jealous! The more I read about them, the more I want a little 'scovy duckling. [​IMG]

    I have 2 2 week old scovy ducklings. I am amazed at how much of their own food they find. If they were outside all day, I'd hardly have to feed them. And they are already quite the experts at catching bugs. I got mine for fly catching too. And they are the most personable little ducks, too.
