Well I went and picked up a pair of muscovies today. Never again will I deal with a bird that huge with claws that long. Those claws went through my heavy duty leather gloves, and I'm bleeding from multiple puncture wounds. I was trying to get him into the makeshift quarantine pen downstairs and he would have nothing to do with it. He's now running around with the rest of the flock, and I'll never be able catch him again, I am sure. I sure hope he is disease free. The female is pretty and sweet enough, but I don't think I like claws on my birds. She better be a good incubator this spring!
