I have a friend who has a pair of muscovies and they just hatched 15 duckilngs a few weeks ago. I am considering adding a couple or three lol to my place I jsut had some uneducated questions. His ducks are from a "breeder" and they look a bit differnt than alot of pics i see on here. His ducks especially the drake have heavy red face leathering ( asi call it) Is there a technical term for this? And it is BRIGHT blood redand fairly profuse. The pics i see on here and elsewhere the face color alot of times is pale red- pink and is not bulbous looking like his are. What is the proper amount and color? his also seem to have " mohawks" that they raise and lower - seen alot when they are flirting and courting each other - is this preffered? His are large birds - and a beautiful cream and chocolate color. They are very quiet except they make their lil hissing odd Muscovy noises. And ay tips on owning these neat ducks too - i know he clips their wings - but anythign else i would need to know? I can tell you the hen was a FIERCE mother on the nest - i have had some tough hens but NOTHING compared to this girl and what i find neat is the drake helps raise them - a family unit so to speak . Fascinating Thanks!
