    This was my first time incubating muscovy eggs had 6 in the incubator and wasn't expecting any to hatch until the 15th. well i wrote down the wrong date, when i got home from work today and went to check to see if any more of my chicken eggs had hatch, I had a little surprise up in the turner part of my sportsman. and here it is:

    VERY VERY CUTE!! Are you sure muscovy? kinda looks dark, and with the spots on the feet, is there any chance that its an Ancona?

    TOO cute! It will imprint to you & you'll have a new best friend. [​IMG] Just be sure to get it some waterfowl starter & don't give it any medicated feed....

    I've had muscovies hatch that look like that...

    That looks just like one of my Muscovies did. They are so awesome! More like dogs than ducks.

    I love that baby's little toes! Muscovies are by far my favorite! Their personalities are fantastic, if sometimes difficult.
