    My 3 drakes are a little over 12 lbs each. We weighed them today. The 2 ducks are 6 lbs each.

    It's just amazing how fast they've grown!

    This is one of the ducks we adopted from 17Roses. They're in with the above Muscovy's.

    This is another 2 of the ducks we adopted from 17Roses. There's a black hen as well but she's sitting on eggs.

    Quote:She's gorgeous. I agree! They're just monsters! I can't get over how huge the drakes are. At 3 months old! LOL

    I told my grandson today if they get much bigger that I'm going to put a saddle on them and he can ride them.

    A month ago that pen that they're in had 8 inch high grass in it. Not anymore. I let them out to free range for a couple of hours a day. Today the drakes were trying to fly. They're so heavy, they're not going anywhere. ROFL!!
