The are beautiful !!
Anyone wanting muscovys near me, I have quite a few for sale.
They look nice, would be interesting what they look like after their moult.
Colors are a bit tricky with ducks.
Miss Lydia posted this link earlier. The page goes over the various colors, explaining them. That might help you riddle it out.
My 3 baby scovies!!
So adorable !!!
So cute! They look to be the same age as my babies (2 1/2 weeks). They are really showing their personalities at that age!
I had two questions.....
1. Is there an average number of eggs a muscovy lays before they sit? How is the entire thing effected when you have three ducks?
2. My two half grown (one male and one female) the drake sometimes chases after the little ducklet. Today i watched as he managed to grab onto her tail. She kept running, so it hurt, and started crying loudly. He finally let go, and she ran off and one of the grown ducks as well as the drakelet went and comforted her.
Is the drake wanting to mate with her....and it isn't working since she isn't yet old enough to get the idea? Or is the drake wanting his daughter to leave the area? I had rather hoped that I could keep her along with the other ducks, and that her father the drake could breed her. She is such a lovely color.
