    Hi there, thought I'd upload a pic or two of my Muscovy ducks.

    Here they are yesterday, they came into the shed for a warm up, before going back out to the stream...

    This is Steve, my 3 year old Peking. I had a dog attack my five Pekings, all of them where bitten and only Steve survived. She's staying on my land until she dies of natural causes...

    And this is their run, they share with my chickens. I have a stream running through it on the right hand side.

    They're very pretty & your drake is quite handsome! I love the different shades of Blue in his colored feathers.

    his ducklings had great marking too. I sold some of the coloured ones, ate the others and kept only the white ones...bad idea. It's extremely difficult to tell which duck is which.
