    I've been looking around on this form and really have not come across anyone having "scovys" I have a young little herd of them and I hope the hens will start laying next year they are 5months the drakes are already starting to fight so I know im going to be geting rid of one or seperating them. I think they are a wonderful breed of duck. Nice and quiet, big, wonderful fly and mosquiyo hunters and they love to pick my weeds for me! I dont know what else you could ask from a duck! The Drakes are always so happy and love wagging there tails. Anyone else out there with info or fun pictuers of these interesting scovys.

But nobody sell them here, it not allowed, I would be put in jail if I tryed to sell them here. But I love the ducks I have now. Oh I also have some khaki campbell duck eggs in the incubator. And the welsh and two of the rouens are only day old ducklings, if you see in my signiture [​IMG] good luck!

    I am down to about 84 as opposed to having over 100 muscovy ducks this year. My girls hatched out about 100 ducklings this year. I was able to sell a bunch of them.

    Muscovy Ducks are the best !!!!!!!!!

    I put muscovy eggs under this duck and she hatched them out. She didn't know they were not her eggs. [​IMG]

    This is her again with her muscovies as they got older.
