    Hi, have any of you any Muscovy eggs from brown & white Muscovies? Looking for a "tan" pied, or a light chocolate pied with pinto like markings? Would like tan or light brown on their head also. I have posted an inquirey before with no results. I realize that the offspring may not look exactly like the parents, but I should stand a better chance of getting what I want if the parents look like what I am after. I would like sharp distinct markings and about an equal amount of white and tan (not a real deep chocolate) or maybe a little more white than color. I am going to try to post a picture of just about what I'm looking for and I have no idea whose duck it is to give proper credit too.

    I Dont have eggs right now..but should soon in the colors your looking for.
    I have a chocolate male, a very deep chocolate male, white female & white w/light brown females & white with lt brown ripples also-Thats pen gives a variety of nothing but tans & browns..all blue eyed too.

    Ive never had muscovies that lay seasonal..mine always lay year round..so check back with me if you havent found any- I wont be hatching but a few until spring & should have plenty of eggs--I just had so many i was giving them to relatives for eating.
