    After a couple years of taking away all the girls eggs to focus on my geese,
    I've left the duck eggs in the 2 community nests this spring.
    Here's my silver girl (giving me the evil eye) setting on about 30 eggs!
    They scoop out a deep bowl shaped nest and somehow cover all those eggs with their little bodies.
    I think I will go in there and throw out about 10 eggs out of each nest.
    Might have some 2012 pairs for sale this fall after 2 years of no Muscovy sales.
    Mostly blue fawns (AKA lilacs) and few chocolates and pastels.
    Check my website for updates later this summer. (sorry not taking orders/deposits
    )
