    Aww hopefully winter won’t be too hard on her. Sounds like she has had a wonderful life.

    It feels like it's been years since I had my lovely Muscovy Ducks.. Next summer I will for sure have Muscovy ducks again! I plan to do Hoop Coop/Run this time around, May end up going back to Chain-link fencing and fly pens. Really loving all the pictures! Help the days go by faster.

    I'm trying to slowly phase out ducks but my super broodies let wanting to hatch them lol. I love the ones I have now but don't necessarily want more. My super Mama hen has 8 muscovy eggs that are probably about 2 weeks in and my muscovy duck, Ebony, has 10 eggs so far. She's on the nest all day but isn't really incubating them yet. They're just pushed out around her. Is that normal? I know she knows what to do. She hatched out 8 babies around the very beginning of April (she wasn't happy I sold them all).

    Maybe she's not quite ready to start brooding them yet? If she knows she has more eggs to lay, she makes sure the others don't get so warm that they start developing? Just thinking out loud. She's eager to start brooding, but know she can't start yet so she's just playing broody-momma while she's waiting. Haha!
