    I just wanted to share. This is my first duck pair ever. I love their coloring. They are about 5 1/2-6 months old. I just brought them home yesterday. They are pretty scared and both hiss if I get too close. I'm going to try to spend lots of time with them cause I really want to have that close bond that I've heard muscovy have with their owners. I'm so very excited! The front one is the girl, the other the boy. Does anyone know what color these are considered?

    Very cool, I'm excited to see what they turn into then. Thank you for the welcome! Hopefully this spring we'll be seeing some eggs from them.
