    The oldest of the ducklings are ALMOST 5 months, so still alot of Growing yet but I see alot of Potential.

    I have decided on 9 hens and 3 Drakes that I am for sure keeping. Most are in these pictures. All from today, I took pictures a week ago and compared them and the males noticeably got more Caruncling in SEVEN DAYS! It is amazing to me.. Ok enouph talking and more pics...

    Very nice! I see you like black muscovies. Yours seem to have a blue sheen on them rather than the bright green sheen that I often see black muscovies have. Is that the difference between domestic black muscovies and wild ones?
