Hi... andOK, I posted my serious questions in the "Attention Muscovy lovers" thread, but here are my color questions......
I HAVE, looked through a good number of pictures, but I just don't feel very confident at identifying by myself.
This is mama number 3, with her two half grown ducklings. The dark duckling is a male, the very light one is a female.
Same mama number 3, same half grown ducks, just a different shot
Female number 2 baby girl behind her and baby boy in front of her and left
Female number 1 on left with two year old drake in middle and head of female number 3 on right
All of them together....they look a little rough. #1, male, #3, baby male, #2, baby girl
The poor things had to be caught in a muddy pen which made them very muddy, then transported in dog crates, then I clipped the wings of the grown females, and they were released.
The drake has only pin feathers on his wings....hard molt? As in NOT A SINGLE full grown feather. I asked the lady I bought them from, she thought it was just a molt (no trauma that she knew of). The two little ones are also all pin feathers on the wings, but it is clearly because they are just babies.
All three girls looked like they were about to go through a molt, their feathers were way ratty, and there were a very few pin feathers, but I was still able to cut all flight feathers (as in I only saw maybe two pin feathers, and they were still very short, almost all flight feathers were full grown and very old).
So......can anyone tell me the colors?
