    I have many young Muscovy ducks and ducklings available now!
    I have males and females ranging from almost fully feathered to a few weeks old.
    I also have ducklings hatched on June 30th and one duck hatching this week.

    Most of the ducklings will be black and white pied (black with varied white patches). I also have many that will be blue (gray) and white pied. Also several that will be completely black or completely blue. Some of the ducklings will end up with completely white feathers on their heads! This year I see some really unusual colors! Many atipico gray and black colors.

    If you are interested I will also ship eggs. I have several hens laying now.

    $10 for ducklings
    $12 for ducklings old enough to determine gender.

    I feed Nutrena all flock to the adults and youngsters, the tiny ducklings get chick starter (un-medicated). They also get oats and some scratch grains. They free range around the farm during the day eating grass, weeds, bugs and seeds.

    Muscovy are great bug catchers, are very quiet and get a long great with chickens and turkeys. They do not need a pond, but do need some water for bathing.

    Muscovy meat is not greasy like most duck. I've been told Muscovy males will mature to about 12 to 15 pounds, the females will be 8 - 9 pounds. I do not know how much my own ducks weigh.

    I work for Spee Dee delivery. You can have them picked up by a route driver in Rockford and have them next day. Call our Bloomington hub and order the P/U once you have confirmation from the seller.
