    20% protien should be lowered to about 16% at 3 weeks... to much protein beyond this point causes overdevelopment--its like steroids. Add rolled wheat or milo...be cautious of adding corn--its fatty, and your bird may be suffering enough difficulty at this point. I am sorry, but I don't have a muscovy, so I can't help there... but the above info is based upon what I have read and learned in Storey's guide to raising ducks by David Holderread
