    Found some white Muscovys, for 6 months to 1 1/2 years in age for $5 a bird. Wondering if I should jump on the oppurtunity. Any suggestions?

    Quote:That's an excellent price... I wouldn't sell mine for less than $20 each unless I was trying to get rid of extra drakes.

    Don't jump on the opportunity unless white Muscovy ducks were already on your wish list.

    It's a big mistake to purchase animals for no other reason than they are really cheap.
