    So this morning i went and let all my birds out to start their day of chicken and ducky activities. Then i went about my other daily animal chores, and i noticed my little muscovy hen head into the chicken coop. Well she settled right in and made herself at home, i later came back to discover the first duck egg ever to be in my possesion

    Yaaay how exciting! My very first ducks are in the bator yet to hatch, and I can't wait for the day when I'll start finding eggs of our own! How old is your muscovy?

    I bought a trio in the January from a BYC member. The drake and one hen were born in 2014, and the hen who laid my egg was born i believe the year before. She is the oldest of the three muscovies, but i have only had the Muscovies since January.
