    [​IMG]Hi everyone...

    I have this muscovy "hen" that I bought a month ago...

    "She" is all by herself right now so She really doesn't make any noise.. We had a couple more but they took off and left "her"behind..And without another to compare "her" to in person I'm just not sure..

    Is she a she?...

    Yay! That's what I thought.. But I always second guess myself...

    I'm picking up 4 more muscovy hens this week end to keep her company...

    I had more but one day everyone but her disappeared[​IMG]...

    I'm having trouble finding a drake locally... I'm keeping my eye out though. I want to breed this year

    That is great [​IMG] I hope you can find a handsome drake for your girls. Muscovys are really good fliers so they probably flew away so you might need to clip their wings. I'm not an expert but I got great resources from @Miss Lydia
    On how to clip them properly. Your duck is beautiful [​IMG][​IMG] Does she have a name?

    Her name is Penelope... We did clip wings. We clip all of out birds.. Guineas included.

    We do live 1/4 mile from the river so that's most likely where they went. Last year I had pekins that would wander down during the day and come home every night.

    We got rid of that bunch because the females were just so noisy all the time I could never sleep.. Lol... Even my guineas don't make that much noise lol
