    I've been reading a lot about people who raise show Muscovy ducks and I was wondering what constitutes a good show Muscovy duck and color? Can a duck close in color to the wild type (such as Tom, whom I've posted about) be shown? How about breeding these wild-types with domestic show-colored ducks? I heard something about the percentage of white being important, too.

    Is there a website that gives a good example of what colors are acceptable for showing?

    Also, is the personality type of the duck you are going to show important?

    Please educate me. [​IMG]
