    OK, more babies today! YEAH! I think I counted ten, but there was at least one more egg pipping, so, I might end up with more.

    notice, they are rainbow colors, just like I hoped for! One is a black, most look chocolate, one is almost all yellow with just a little very faint spot on the top of its head and another on its back.

    How much can you guess what they will look like as adults from their cute baby down?

    will the almost all yellow duckling end up as almost all white, with colored spots where she now has colored spots?

    I sold almost all of my white muscovies to a local man yesterday and we are both from NY and we both grew up with white muscovies. We were talking about my barred and blue and fawns. Neither of us remembers having seen anything but white or solid black muscovies (I remember chocolates and maybe blues) but I don't remember either of those colors being anything but solid (with the white primary feathers). I remember that there was such a thing as pied ducks, but nobody I knew actually bred them because they werent accepted for show. This was like almost 20 years ago, have things changed as far as what colors are acceptable at a show or do I have to show my barred and pied ducks as "any other colors"?
